The Bolivian government said earlier that it ruled out sending military personnel in order to subdue the police officers who carried out the rebellion.

Bolivian police units rebelled on Friday in the southeastern cities of Sucre, Santa Cruz (east) and Cochabamba (central), and failed to comply with orders from their leadership to demand the suppression of demonstrations against the re-election of President Evo Morales.

The tactical operations unit in Cochabamba was the first to declare the rebellion, followed by commandos in Sucre and Santa Cruz.
