(en) ait russia: Anti-police riot in Colombia [machine translation]

Date Wed, 16 Sep 2020 09:14:03 +0300


In real street fighting, protests against police violence in Colombia have spilled over. The police not only use gas and stun grenades, but also open fire on demonstrators, the number of those killed has reached 11, more than 400 people were injured. Enraged protesters are throwing stones at the police, ransacking and partially setting fire to 56 police stations and dozens of buses. More than 100 people were arrested. Violent protests are taking place in Bogota, Cali and Medellin ... ---- Riots began on Wednesday after police killed 43-year-old lawyer Javier Ordoñez, a father of two, in detention. 2 police officers threw him to the ground and at least 5 times hit him with an electric shock, despite him and those around him asking: "Please stop!" He later died in hospital. The Bogotoi police chief announced that the police had been called because the drunks were breaking order, and Ordonez allegedly hit the police.

The Minister of Defense expressed his sympathy for the Ordonez family. The authorities promise to punish both police officers. But this cannot calm people's indignation.
