Police in Bolivia, who have been on strike in protest at low pay, have rejected a deal their representative struck with the government.

The officers burned the document their negotiator had signed after all-night talks with the Interior Minister and said they would elect new leaders.

They demand their pay be raised to equal that of soldiers of the same rank.

The government has accused the officers of setting the scene for a coup.
