  • Colombia’s new finance minister struck a conciliatory tone as violent protests continued across the country, saying he would seek to build consensus around a proposal to shore up the budget without resorting to the types of tax hikes that have stirred the unrest.
  • The office of Colombia’s human rights ombudsman said 18 civilians and a police officer died in violence during the protests that began throughout the country on April 28, while 846 people, including 306 civilians, were injured.
