Police officers in the central Bolivian city of Cochabamba mutinied on Friday, and declared their support for protests against Bolivia’s current President Evo Morales.

Dozens of protesters cheered the uniformed agents standing on the rooftop of the city’s National Police headquarters, waving the national flag and chanting slogans.

The mutiny, which was initiated in Bolivia’s third-largest city, was joined by officers in Sucre, Santa Cruz, Tarija and Oruro, according to reports.

Protests broke out across Bolivia last month over disputed election results which gave Morales enough votes to avoid a run-off. Despite the announcement that the numbers will be audited, the protests continued as the opposition demands a new vote without Morales taking part.
