    Background: An estimated 12 people were injured an over one hundred arrested during violent demonstrations by university students in Lima on February 1. Thousands of youths took to the capital's streets to protest against a hefty increase in student bus fares. According to Lima's police spokesman, dozens of cars, buses and shops were stoned before security forces dispersed the demonstrators with rubber truncheons, tear-gas and water cannons. During vicious rioting last month, two student lost their lives and nearly 200 were detained by police when the bus fare increases were announced. The February 1 disturbances would probably have exacted a far higher toll of casualties, had quick action by police explosives express managed to neutralise several sticks of dynamite planted by the rioting youths.
