Protest in Bolivia: mayor attacked and dragged through streets

The mayor of a small village in Bolivia was attacked by opposition protesters, who dragged her through the streets barefoot, covered her in red paint, and forcibly cut off her hair.

Mayor Patricia Arce, who forms part of the party in government, was handed over to police a few hours later. This is the latest in a series of violent clashes between pro-government supporters, against the opposition, in view of the controversial presidential elections that are to be held shortly.

So far, three people have already died during these protests.
