Way Forward in Ecuador Looks Murky after Deadly Violence

Way Forward in Ecuador Looks Murky after Deadly Violence

Friday, 11 October 2019 12:38 AM EDT

QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — Anti-government protesters forced captive police officers to carry a coffin containing the body of an indigenous activist, underlining the anger directed at Ecuador's government more than week after rises in fuel prices set off nationwide unrest among indigenous groups, unions and others.

Thursday's memorial service for an indigenous man said to have been killed during the clashes happened in the capital of Quito, the focus of protests that have plunged President Lenín Moreno's government into crisis and laid bare Ecuador's political and social rifts.

Big jumps in the costs of gasoline and diesel after Moreno ended subsidies last week set off the upheaval, but other complaints have come out amid protests, looting, vandalism, clashes with security forces, the blocking of highways and disruptions of Ecuador's vital oil industry.
