Protests in Bolivia broke out on October 20 and continue to this day. In three large cities – Santa Cruz, Sucre and Cochabamba – police joined the protesters.

At the same time, the police leadership claims that there is no riot among the guards, and the authorities promised not to send troops into these cities.

The reason for the riots was the results of the vote count in the presidential election. According to the Bolivian High Election Court, Morales won the first round, but his main rival, Carlos Mesa, did not recognize the results of the vote.

Morales believes that right-wing forces are behind the mass protests, dissatisfied with his re-election. He called the situation in the country an attempted coup.
