Ecuador hopes for an end to deadly protests

Ecuador's President Lenin Moreno is set to meet with indigenous leaders in a bid to find a resolution to anti-austerity protests that have led to six deaths. The demonstrations have seen considerable violence.

Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno on Saturday ordered a curfew and military control in his country's capital, Quito, after days of protests triggered by austerity measures. The protests are being led by an indigenous umbrella group. Pre-Columbian groups make up a quarter of the country's population of 17.3 million.
