    As Peru swore into office a new president Tuesday hundreds of people protested on the streets of Lima. Riot police pushed back large crowds, using tear gas as they made their way through the center of the capital. The new interim President is businessman and former head of Congress Manuel Merino who is unknown to most and was recently accused of trying to secure the military’s support for a congressional effort to boot the nation’s last leader out over unproven corruption allegations. Merino’s swearing in was met with anger, resignation and protests on the streets of Peru’s capital a day after Congress voted to oust popular President Martín Vizcarra, who had campaigned against corruption. Peruvians widely distrust legislators and decried Vizcarra’s removal as an overt power grab.
