SCRIPT
A group of students from the San Marcos National University clashed with police before taking control over the campus in Lima on Tuesday. Protesters want to stop the construction of a road on the territory of the university.
The project was first proposed in 2006 by a former Lima mayor but was blocked by protesting students. Now they are protesting against the latest plan which was supported by the university's rector.
