Peru has closed its famous tourist site Machu Picchu indefinitely over the continuing protests against the country’s new president. Demonstrators in Peru demand elections and call for the new president, Dina Boluarte, to stand down, but she has refused to do so. Authorities announced on Saturday that another protester died following demonstrations in the southern region of Puno, where police stations were set on fire.
