Rebel police in Bolivia invaded the downtown square in front of the presidential palace in La Paz on Sunday (June 24), accusing their leaders of betraying them by signing a deal on pay and conditions with the government earlier in the day. As part of the deal signed on Sunday, the government agreed that the wages of the country's roughly 35,000 police officers should be brought into line with other public-sector employees with a minimum monthly wage of nearly $300.
