La Paz, Bolivia, Nov 11, 2019 / 16:47 pm
The Bolivian bishops have urged an end to the vandalism that has taken place following the resignation of president Evo Morales on Sunday.
Supporters of Morales have clashed with police in several cities.
In a Nov. 10 message, the bishops' conference, along with several civic groups, encouraged "Bolivians to peace and to not commit acts of vandalism or revenge or anything we could regret. We all have a grave obligation to defend the lives of all Bolivians."
They also pointed out that "what's happening in Bolivia is not a coup d'état, we say it before all Bolivian citizens and the entire international community."
