At least 12 people have died since the beginning of April in various protest-related incidents. Mass rallies began after the country’s Supreme Court attempted to take on the legislative functions of the National Assembly, which is currently controlled by the opposition. The court’s decision was reversed, but the tensions in the country remained high.
