Mass-scale unrest in Panama City

Mass-scale unrest in Panama City

Mass-scale unrest erupted in Panama City on Friday, with residents protesting against a government-adopted law that authorizes the sale of land in one city district.

A nine-year old boy was killed by a police bullet. At least 13 other protesters were wounded when police opened fire on the demonstrators who smashed several cars, looted warehouses and wreaked havoc on a number of petrol-filling stations.
