Peruvians hold protest in Lima demanding president step down

Peruvian President Dina Boluarte faces nationwide protests amidst a political crisis.

Hundreds take part in a demonstration against Peru's interim President Dina Boluarte in the capital Lima, demanding she step down and hold elections.

Boluarte came to power in December after former leftist president Pedro Castillo was ousted and arrested, triggering accusations of power grabbing and setting off months of nationwide demonstrations. The protesters also demand accountability after a crackdown by security forces which left dozens dead.
