  • Morales wasn't in building when police retreated with some of them standing on roof of nearby police station
  • Some police in Bolivia became openly defiant toward the government on Friday, with protests spreading
  • Protesters demands include better working conditions and the immediate resignation of their commander
  • Morales claimed he was re-elected in a vote on October 20, but the opposition have since alleged fraud


Police guards outside the presidential palace in Bolivia left their posts today, allowing anti-government protesters to walk up to the doors of the building. President Evo Morales was not in the building when police retreated on Saturday, with some of them standing on the roof of a near by police station in a sign of growing discontent among security forces after a disputed election.

Officials in the palace in La Paz were evacuated, leaving only a military presidential guard. Protesters later left the area.Some police in Bolivia became openly defiant toward the government on Friday, and their protests appeared to be spreading.

Their demands include better working conditions and the resignation of their commander.Morales claimed he was re-elected in the October 20 vote, but the opposition alleged fraud. The dispute triggered nationwide protests, resulting in three deaths and more than 300 injuries.

Defense Minister Javier Zabaleta has downplayed the police protests, saying a 'police mutiny occurred in a few regions.'The political opposition says there was fraud in the election, an allegation that Morales says amounts to an attempt to overthrow Bolivia's rightful government. On Thursday a Bolivian mayor was doused in red paint and had her hair hacked off by protesters who blamed her for the deaths of two opposition protesters.
