The mayor of a small town in Bolivia has been attacked by opposition protesters who dragged her through the streets barefoot, covered her in red paint and forcibly cut her hair.

Patricia Arce of the governing Mas party was handed over to police in Vinto after several hours.

It is the latest in a series of violent clashes between government supporters and opponents in the wake of controversial presidential elections.

At least three people have died so far.

What happened?
A group of anti-government protesters was blocking a bridge in Vinto, a small town in Cochabamba province in central Bolivia, as part of their ongoing demonstrations following the presidential election on 20 October.

Rumours spread that two opposition protesters had been killed nearby in clashes with supporters of incumbent president, Evo Morales, prompting an angry group to march to the town hall.

The protesters accused Mayor Arce of having bussed in supporters of the president to try and break a blockade they had set up and blamed her for the reported deaths, one of which was later confirmed.

Amid shouts of "murderess, murderess" masked men dragged her through the streets barefoot to the bridge. There, they made her kneel down, cut her hair and doused her in red paint. They also forced her to sign a resignation letter.

Ms Arce was eventually handed over to the police who took her to a local health centre.

Her office was set alight and the windows of the town hall were smashed.

Who died?
The person killed in clashes between supporters and opponents of President Morales was identified as 20-year-old student Limbert Guzmán Vasquez. Doctors said Mr Guzmán Vasquez had a fractured skull which may have been caused by an explosive device.

He is the third person to be killed since the clashes between the two sides erupted on 20 October.

What's behind the clashes?
Tension has been running high since election night when the results count was inexplicably paused for 24 hours.

The suspension prompted suspicions among supporters of opposition candidate Carlos Mesa that the result had been rigged to allow Mr Morales, who has been in power since 2006 to stay on for another five years.

The final result gave Mr Morales just over the 10-percentage-point lead he needed to win outright in the first round of the presidential election.

Election observers from the Organization of American States (OAS) expressed their concerns and an audit by the body is currently underway. However, Mr Mesa has rejected the audit arguing that it was agreed without his or his party's input.

Mr Morales has accused Mr Mesa of staging a coup d'etat and supporters of each side have squared off in La Paz and other cities.

This reeks of a False Flag; you don't physically humiliate your political opposition, you murder them, their constituents, and their families.
Like what the fuck is even the point in keeping someone you've wronged alive in a position of power? It is like taking a shit on England's Queen then fucking off and whistling along the way.

I always find it sort of telling when the politician in these stories is far fatter than most of the citizenry they govern.
You can recognize them for their swiney attributes.

Considering most angry mobs straight up murder you in other shithole countries she got kind of lucky.
I'm surprised only 3 people died yet in over 2 weeks.
Specially since Bolivian comie miners have been literally throwing dynamite at the protesters.

I honestly want to see shit like this come back in the 1st world. Imagine voicing your displeasure with a politician by tarring & feathering them. What the fuck are they going to do about it? Ban feathers.

Its a little late for that for most of our politicians friend. I think a more.....permanent solution would help get rid of the corruption that seems to infect most lazy politicians in the world today.
