A Peruvian judge has ordered a mayor accused of inciting anti-mining protests to be held in "preventative" detention for up to five months.

Two people died and many dozens were injured in Monday's protests in Espinar against the expansion of a copper mine.

Oscar Mollohuanca rejects accusations he incited violence and used public funds to pay for the protest.

He has not been charged, but is being held because he is a flight risk.
