Bolivian protesters unfurl 200km-long flag to demand sea access

Tens of thousands of Bolivians unfurled a “flag of maritime revindication,” which stretched for 200km (124 miles) along a highway in the Andes Saturday, to express support for the nation’s claim for access to the Pacific coast. Bolivia is set to present legal arguments in the International Court of Justice in The Hague over its bid for a sea corridor, lost in a war with Chile in the 19th century.
