Talks continued Saturday in Bolivia, where a police mutiny over pay has included the storming of buildings and a hunger strike by officers' wives. Bottom-rank officers across the country are demanding a substantial pay increase and a retirement pension equal to their current salaries.
They have a monthly base salary of $115 and want a jump to $287.

Other demands include the resignation of their commander.


The tension rose Thursday when mutineers entered a building used by higher-level officers.
Friday, protesters raided police intelligence offices, seizing computers and burning investigation documents. Protesters threw rocks while others burned papers, furniture and other items in the street.
