Bolivian woman buys domestic gas in El Alto June 11, 2005. Bolivian indigenous groups began lifting roadblock protests on Friday after the country's new president took office pledging to hold elections and negotiate key demands that triggered three weeks of turmoil. Drivers formed long lines outside gas stations hoping supplies were restored. In El Alto, a sprawling poor area in the mountains above the capital, protesters began opening roadways to the international airport although indigenous leaders have yet to officially lift the blockade.
