Peruvian police use force to stop migrant caravan crossing

Peruvian police has pushed back forcefully to stop a caravan of migrants and refugees as they tried to enter the country.

The group is fleeing from neighbouring Brazil where the COVID-19 pandemic has left many sick and without jobs.

Peru usually has an open-arms policy but now local authorities say the foreign ministries of Brazil and Peru must find a quick solution because those migrants are already living in dire conditions.
