Lima, Peru is under a curfew, as protests over surging fuel and fertilizers prices take place nationwide.

On Monday, President Pedro Castillo announced a curfew from 2am until 11:59 pm Tuesday.

He said it was in response to "violent acts certain groups have created by blocking free transit" on roads to and from the capital, Lima, The Guardian reports.

Protests started last week when farmers and truck drivers blocked roads into Lima, triggering a jump in consumer prices.
