A mutiny by rank-and-file Bolivian police demanding wage increases has spread across the nation, with about 4,000 officers occupying barracks. Protesters sacked and set fire to furniture and documents in one police office in La Paz on Friday but the protest otherwise appeared peaceful. It began on Thursday when about 30 police and their wives seized an elite unit's barracks just 100 meters (328 feet) from the presidential palace.
