Blanco said that small vehicles were allowed to cross the border into Bolivia on 26 February, and that lorries began to cross the following day. Blanco said that there at least 300 Bolivian lorries have been trapped in Peru during the unrest, which has seen roadblocks set up on highways around the country and at border crossings.
