The death toll in Bolivia's protests in the past 24 hours has risen to 23 dead and 715 injured.

"Since yesterday, nine people have been killed and 122 injured by repression by the police and armed forces. This brings the death toll to 23 and 715 injured since the beginning of the political crisis," the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights said in a statement on Sunday.

A wave of protests erupted over Bolivia's re-election of former president Evo Morales for a fourth term after the October 20 election, narrowly ahead of his opponent, Carlos Mesa.

On November 10, Morales announced his resignation following pressure from the opposition and calls from the military, and in response to a wave of protests that swept the Bolivian street, which opposed the results of the recent presidential elections, which gave Morales a fourth term.
