At least two people were injured in violent clashes between protesters and police near the National Pedagogical University in Bogota on Friday. Protesters, mostly students, demonstrated against increased prices on bus-rapid transit system, the Transmilenio and demanded an explanation for the partial closure of Avenue Caracas. Police deployed rubber bullets and water cannons against the 200 to 300 university students protesting.
