Bolivia unrest: Morales' supporters reject interim President Anez

Buoyed by growing worldwide recognition, Ms Anez named new military chiefs and half of her proposed 20-member cabinet on Wednesday.

Interior Minister Arturo Murillo announced the government would "hunt down" a former Morales minister, Juan Ramon Quintana, accused of masterminding opposition to his successor. "There is a constitutional replacement".

The presidential candidate of the conservative party of Anez was fourth in the last elections, receiving less than five percent of the votes. Donald Trump and Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro say it was Morales who repeatedly undermined his nation's democracy.

Morales was interviewed by the AP in Mexico, where he received political asylum. A previous toll put the number of deaths at eight.

Veteran leftist Morales resigned on Sunday after an audit found electoral irregularities and the military withdrew its backing and urged him to step down as president to help restore calm.

Police units in various parts of the country had rebelled on Friday, siding with opposition supporters.

Public transport services in La Paz were returning to normal on Wednesday, and bank and businesses reopening. "That's why we've had all this upheaval", said Ms Anez. He said dozens of small police stations had been ransacked and burned by pro-Morales supporters in the wake of the ex-president's resignation.

Pledging early elections, Anez - a previously obscure lawmaker - proclaimed herself acting president on Tuesday after Evo Morales fled the country for Mexico, fearing for his safety amid deadly protests.

Right-wing militias burning the flag and attacking the country's Indigenous protest movement mean that the conflict is more than just about political differences, said Bolivian feminist Adriana Guzman-it's about the country's right-wing being opposed to everything the Morales government stood for. From there, he has been calling for United Nations intervention in a series of interviews with worldwide media. "We ask for his return".

He said: "We hope that for whoever comes to power in Bolivia, the interest towards developing relations with Russian Federation will remain".

He later condemned US President Donald Trump on Twitter for "recognising the de facto [Anez] government", though the White House has not formally done so.

Kremlin loans and political backing have helped Mr Maduro fend off United States efforts to change the leadership in Venezuela, with Mr Morales also backing the dictator before he stepped down this week.

Addressing a news conference, Anez added that Morales' vice president, Alvaro Garcia, would also not be allowed to run for president.

Despite that, the lawmakers have boycotted the parliament sessions dedicated to his resignation.

Morales supporters launched unusual protests Thursday, marching toward govt headquarters in La Paz. As protests devour different Latin American worldwide locations, Putin urged leaders to make use of "widespread sense".

Evidence that he had tried to steal his country's latest presidential election pushed hundreds of thousands of protesters onto the streets of Bolivia's largest cities in recent days.
