Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa has extended until Friday (Oct. 8) the state of emergency he imposed following an police-led uprising in the capital city of Quito last week. The president said the decision was in response to a request from the country’s lawmakers who expressed doubt on whether the local police can still maintain order, Agence France-Presse reports. The state of emergency puts the military in charge of police functions. It was enforced last week after hundreds of police officers led a protest in Quito over legislation that had cut their bonus pay. After the protests died down, top police officials were either arrested or forced to resign.
