After weeks of peaceful protests, demonstrators, outnumbering police, have targeted buildings and set cars on fire in southeast Peru, where the government is allowing a Canadian firm to open a silver mine. The large group opposed to the plan, mostly Aymara indigenous peoples who live in the Andes mountain range, say the mine will contaminate groundwater. Al Jazeera's Craig Mauro reports from Puno, Peru.
