Ecuador protests: President withdraws from talks to end strike

The president of Ecuador has withdrawn from negotitations to end a nationwide strike by indigenous farmers after an overnight attack against a military convoy escorting fuel from the oil rich Amazonia region, that left one soldier dead and 12 injured.
The strike has paralyzed the country and left at least seven dead.
Late on Tuesday, the Legislative Assembly voted against a motion to remove President Guillermo Lasso from office.
