A commuter looks out of the window of a 60-year-old cable car in the town of Chiatura, some 220 km northwest of Tbilisi, Georgia.

Members of Bolivia's National Council of Ayllus and Markas of Qullasuyu, a confederation to politically represent certain indigenous communities, sit outside the congress building as they keep vigil for their leaders who have been on a hunger strike for the last four days, in La Paz, Chile, on Monday.

The CONAMAQ are protesting against the results of the last census, which caused the geographical region they represent to lose congressional seats for the next legislative elections in 2014, according to local media.

The hunger strikers called off their protest on Monday, when it became clear their action would not elicit the government to alter the results of the census.
