LIMA, Peru (AP) — Peru’s president on Tuesday lifted the curfew he had imposed less than a day earlier on the country’s capital and main port in a bid to quell sometimes violent protests against rising fuel and food prices.
President Pedro Castillo had announced the surprise curfew and emergency measures shortly before midnight and ended them on Tuesday afternoon after more than 1,000 people protested the stay-at-home order in Lima and in the middle of a meeting with congressional leaders. Opposition lawmakers had called the emergency measures illegal.
