Paraguay protests: At least one dead after violent protests in Paraguay

At least one person was found dead after protestors were furious with a change to the law of reelection. Protestors stormed into the congressional building and set it on fire. Many people in Paraguay and enraged by the decision to Senate rules that would allow the current president Horacio Cartes to seek re-eclection. The law originally states that presidents may only run for one term. The Colorado Party's decision to create an alternative Senate thats goal is to allow Cartes to seek a second term. They stated they will stop their protests once Cartes says he will not seek a second term.
