Ecuador protests erupt for sixth day over fuel subsidy cuts

An overnight curfew is in place in Ecuador’s capital Quito in areas close to government buildings.
This follows a clash by thousands of protesters with security forces during a sixth day of violent demonstrations.
Many are furious after the government scrapped a 40-year-old fuel subsidy – as part of economic reforms linked to an IMF loan.
