Paraguay's parliament has voted to have President Fernando Lugo impeached after deadly land clashes last week.

The opposition-controlled lower house overwhelmingly approved the move.

The Senate quickly followed suit and announced it would hold the trial today, giving the left-wing president 24 hours to prepare his defence.

Lugo has faced severe criticism over his handling of a forced land eviction in which seven police officers and at least nine farmers were killed.
