Bolivia Riots Kill Two

Riots in Bolivia this weekend resulted in the death of two, including one police officer. The riot ignited after a radical ammendment to the consitituion in Sucre was apporved. The ammendment would allow the current president to stay in office, and change other major politics. A prison was also set on fire during the riot, freeing more than 100 prisoners.

This story, though short, was a very exciting to read. I picture the reporter in the midst of the riot, dodging bullets and tear gas, jumping over fire -- getting the story. Further more, it was a good article. Well-written, inverted pyramid. It got the facts across and brought attention to the issue.
