Two more people were killed and 27 injured Saturday in a second round of clashes between protesters and police in Peru during rioting against Lima's insistence on relocating open-air market La Parada.
"One was gunned down and the other was apparently stabbed," director of the Dos de Mayo Hospital José Roca told EFE.
Roca said the victims, between the ages of 20 and 30, have not yet been identified. Another three people are also being operated on for gunshot wounds.

According to the Associated Press, police fought rioters with tear gas and batons, and reported 103 arrests. Rioting resumed Saturday after two people were killed in the first round of clashes on Thursday and authorities reinforced concrete barriers blocking access to the market.
Lima's mayor, Susana Villaran, blamed criminals hired by crooked merchants for the violent rioting, the AP also reported. She said La Parada, located near downtown Lima, needs to be moved to stop criminal activity and improve hygiene.
"All the real merchants who don't rely on criminals have said they want to move to the new market," Villaran said, according to BBC News. "We are regaining order and security in an area that has only been one of disorder, chaos, insecurity and filth."
