Mexico City: Peruvian Prime Minister Alberto Otarola called the attack on the airport in the city of Juliaca in the Puno Region, where, according to the latest reports, 17 anti-government protesters died, a planned action and called on the prosecutor’s office to find and punish those planning a coup.

“Today, more than 9,000 people gathered near the airport, of whom 2,000 participated in a merciless attack on the police and [airport] buildings,” the prime minister said in an address broadcast on government social media.

“There is information about casualties that we mourn, and those who mulled a coup are directly responsible for this,” he said.
