Anti-government protests in Quito continued despite a 24-hour military curfew, as footage from Sunday shows. The capital's streets were covered with smoke from burning tires, with protesters seen building barricades and protecting themselves from police with makeshift shields. Ecuador has plunged into a wave of protests amid social discontent over economic adjustment measures, including the elimination of fuel subsidies, in agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to obtain million-dollar loans.
