    Peru’s Congress on Monday voted to impeach the popular president Martin Vizcarra, sparking protests across the Andrean nation. Lawmakers accuse Vizcarra of taking bribes from construction companies when he was a governor, which Vizcarra has rejected as “baseless” and “false.” Observers say the opposition lacks evidence, and describe the president’s removal as a dangerous move.
