Ecuador declares a state of exception.

Ecuador: The government of Ecuador declared a state of exception for 60 days throughout the national territory and shielded the public force to carry out their actions, Radio Rebelde reports.

When taking the measure, President Guillermo Lasso said that in his country there is a serious internal commotion due to the increase in criminal activity, especially in territories where statistics warn of an upturn in crime.

In provinces such as El Oro, Guayas, Santa Elena, Manabí, Los Ríos, Esmeraldas, Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas, Pichincha and Sucumbíos, the mobilization of the military was ordered to complement the police actions.

Lasso detailed actions such as arms controls, drug trafficking, inspections and constant patrols of out-of-order agents.

The government order came amid a wave of crime, especially in the coastal city of Guayaquil.

Lasso’s announcement coincides with the holding of several demonstrations in the country.
