Fujimori: Tear gas fired at fresh Peru protest rally

Police in Peru have fired tear gas and clashed with thousands of protesters angry at the authorities' decision to pardon ex-President Alberto Fujimori.

"No to the pardon!" the crowds chanted in the capital, Lima, during a second day of unrest.

President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski pardoned Fujimori, who had been serving 25 years for human rights abuses, on health grounds on Christmas Eve.
