Protesters clash with police in Peru’s largest demonstration in decades

At least 30 protesters were detained during massive pro-democracy demonstrations in Peru, with multiple reports of heavy-handed treatment of largely peaceful attendees. 
The health ministry reported two protesters were killed and more than 30 people were being treated for injuries on Saturday after nearly a week of unrest over the controversial removal of Martín Vizcarra as president.
Vizcarra’s replacement by a de facto government is seen by many Peruvians as a coup and people have demanded the resignation of Manuel Merino, the former speaker of congress who was sworn in as president on Tuesday
