UN AND EU SUE FOR PEACE AFTER PROTESTS AGAINST ADMINISTRATION OF COLOMBIAN PRESIDENT, IVAN DUQUE.

ON THE FOREIGN SCENE;
The United Nations and European Union has called for calm and warned of the use of excessive force at protests against the administration of Colombian President IVAN DUQUE.
This call came as protester deaths mounted and demonstrations continued overnight.
The protests, originally called in opposition to a now-canceled tax reform, have become a broad cry for action against poverty and what demonstrators and some advocacy groups say is police use of excessive force.
