How many have been killed by Peru’s coup regime?
State killings have increased in recent days as protests continue in Peru in the aftermath of the legislative coup against President Pedro Castillo who remains imprisoned.
Deaths of civilians have been confirmed by authorities in Apurímac, Arequipa, Ayacucho, La Libertad and Junín, among other regions. Diana Boluarte decreed a curfew in 15 provinces to crackdown on dissent and ramp up the use of repressive tactics.
Who are they and where did the 20 people die? Here’s a list as of Saturday morning, according to national media.
There are likely additional victims who have not been recorded on this list and the exact causes of death have in many cases been obscured by authorities and the media. In most cases, witnesses and human rights defenders have confirmed that the victims were killed by police. Additionally, La República reports that six other people were killed due to traffic accidents or events related to the protests. Hundreds have also been injured across the country.
