Bolivia unrest: President Evo Morales denounced the “ongoing” coup following police rebellions in three Bolivian cities amid opposition demands that the president resign three weeks after his re-election.

“Our democracy is in danger due to the ongoing coup by violent groups against the constitutional order. We condemn this attack on the rule of law by the international community”, Morales said after an emergency meeting to address the nation.

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.
