Killed in clashes: Four more deaths in Bolivia protests: rights commission

Bolivian interim President Jeanine Anez, who took over on Tuesday after a spate of resignations, has said she wants to mend bridges with Morales' Movement for Socialism (MAS) party.

"Now they are killing our brothers in Sacaba, Cochabamba", he said in another tweet.

The latest toll takes the total number killed in the political crisis to 23, according to the Washington-based Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, which also recorded 122 injured since Friday. He then upset many people by getting Bolivia's top court to throw out the limits, allowing him to seek a fourth term in this year's election. "I'm used to being with the people as a union leader, president, doing work", said Morales, who has accused his opponents of conspiring against his government.

'This is an extremely risky development as, far from quelling the violence, it is likely to make it much worse, ' she added.

The United Nations warned on Saturday violence in Bolivia could "spin out of control" following recent skirmishes between security forces and coca farmers loyal to ousted President Evo Morales that have left nine dead.

The protesters carried "weapons, guns, Molotov cocktails, homemade bazookas and explosive devices", Cochabamba police commander Colonel Jamie Zurita said. "No one kicked him out", he told a news conference on Friday, adding that Morales is free to return but has to "answer to justice for electoral fraud".

Morales, a socialist, claimed victory over Carlos Mesa, however once the Group of American States reported irregularities, the election came into query.

Meanwhile, the families of those killed held a candlelight vigil in Sacaba.

He has called it a massacre of indigenous and humble people asking for democracy. Video and photographs from the country showed long stretching lines of people waving the Indigenous wiphala flag and calling for Añez to step down. Surviving protesters and family members of the victims blamed security services, but government officials said some demonstrators were also armed during clashes.

Although demonstrations were generally waning on Sunday, protesters blockaded a highway from El Alto, about 10 kilometers (six miles) from Bolivia's administrative capital, raising the specter of fuel shortages. Soldiers and police in riot gear had been patrolling the area with armoured vehicles in the previous days. I withdraw my candidacy, but they should let me finish my term. Anez said she was pleased to establish relations with a "democratic Venezuela". "If not the whole country is going to close in on her", said Enrique Mamani, 21, a local resident. "There's political persecution against our leaders".

Some Morales supporters have demanded Anez, a former conservative lawmaker, resign.

(CNN)Bolivia's former President, Evo Morales, said that he is willing to return to the country and not run in the next election for the sake of peace and stability if his resignation is accepted.
