In Peru, lawmakers have opened impeachment proceedings against President Martín Vizcarra, who is accused of trying to obstruct an investigation into the allocation of government contracts to a relatively unknown singer. Lawmakers say President Vizcarra may have intervened to award the singer the contracts for motivational talks. This comes as Peru is grappling with a major economic crisis and one of the world’s worst COVID-19 outbreaks, ranking fifth in confirmed cases despite a population of just 32 million.
