Peru’s interim president has resigned, a day after two protesters were killed during a police crackdown on demonstrations. Manuel Merino managed just a few days in post, and his departure was greeted with celebrations on the streets of the capital, Lima.

The country’s top court is now trying to find a new leader to end the uncertainty – but will that quell the anger on the streets?
