28 December 2017 8:44

Clashes erupted in Santa Cruz and La Paz on Wednesday as protesting doctors, medical professionals and medical students entered their 34th day of a strike that has all but shut down local hospitals, with the exception of emergency rooms.

Protesters are demanding the repeal of a new law that imposes heavier sanctions on doctors found guilty of causing physical harm to their patients. The new punishments include five to nine years of imprisonment, the suspension of a professional title, and the seizure of assets. Talks with the government of President Evo Morales regarding the new law have crumbled.
