Motorist shoots dead two protesters blocking a road

An angry motorist has fatally shot two environmental protesters who were obstructing a road.

Startling footage seems to indicate how the driver, who was stuck in traffic, exited his car and opened fire on the demonstrators when they refused to budge in Panama.

The duo were participating in the third week of protests against a contentious government mining contract in the nation, according to officials. One individual was apprehended in connection with the incident, as stated by Panama’s attorney general on the social network X, formerly known as Twitter.

Officials did not specify the manner in which the demonstrators lost their lives while blocking a road in the eastern part of the country, but local reports suggested that they were shot by a driver who was obstructed while attempting to navigate the protest in the middle of the road.
