By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 18/005/2000

All those arrested after anti-government protests which led the government to declare a "state of siege" have now been released, apparently without charge. However, Amnesty International remains concerned for the safety of the journalists: Felipe Quispe Huanca, Fred Nuñez, Angel Claure, Francisco Partis, Emilio Rodríguez, Filomeno Rivera, Felipe Flores, Juan Yapura, Edwin Huanca, Bartolome Flores, David Goitia Benito, Franz Guzmán, Noel Guzmán Wilfredo Apaza; and for the newspaper journalists: Osvaldo Rioja and Jhenny Osinaga and TV journalists Gloria Eyzaguirre and Jaime Buitrago who have received death threats believed to be connected with their coverage of the demonstrations and reports into corruption.
