Ecuador President Moreno orders curfew in areas close to government buildings: decree

QUITO (Reuters) - Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno on Tuesday ordered that authorities restrict movement in areas close to government buildings and strategic installations, according to a written decree, after six days of anti-austerity protests.

The order prevents public access to these areas between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. while a national state of emergency remains, the decree said.
