Many shops were also looted. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) PEDRO CALDERON, LOCAL MERCHANT, SAYING: "There are several stores here where they have broken the chains when nobody was around after all the staff had left. They've broken the locks and then they took what they wanted. They emptied out the stores." Peruvian Interior Minister Wilfredo Pedraza visited police officers who were wounded during the clashes. The protest broke out after police said they would move the market from its current site. A memorial service was held for a police horse, "Lamar".
