World condemns violence in Colombia protest suppression by gov't Updated: 2021-05-06 06:59:38 KST

The global community has condemned violence carried out by the Colombian government, as 19 people were killed during recent anti-government protests.
The U.S., the E.U., and the UN human rights office were among those to voice concerns.
Tens of thousands of Colombians have taken to the streets in demonstrations that began last Wednesday against a proposed tax reform, but have since grown into broader protests against the government of President Ivan Duque.
The tax law proposal was retracted and a resignation of key cabinet member followed to appease the protesters, but to no avail.
So far, more than 800 have been reported injured during the protests.
