Bolivian police officers, who are on strike over low pay, have clashed with supporters of President Evo Morales in Bolivia's main city, La Paz.

About 500 government supporters marched to the city's main square, where 1,000 police had rallied to demand a salary increase.

The officers used tear gas to drive back the government supporters.

Morales has accused the police of setting the stage for a coup, saying that their motives are political.
