In Bogotá, Colombia, at least 24 people(including a police officer) have died as a result of nationwide protests on Wednesday where the police were responsible for at least 11 of these deaths. More than 800 people have been injured and 80 people have been reported missing. The protests started on April 28th in response to the tax reform that the government said was for lightening the economic crisis. The proposal put in place would have lowered the threshold at which salaries are taxed. This would affect anyone with a monthly income of 2.6 pesos(equivalent to $684). On Sunday, Colombia's president, Iván Duque, announced the bill's withdrawal, but the protests continued. However, the government has blamed the chaos on left-wing rebels.
