Hundreds of people along with the relatives of five supporters of former Bolivian president Evo Morales attend their funerals in the Bolivian city of Cochabamba on Saturday.

The five protesters died on Friday after hours of violent clashes between coca growers who wanted to enter Cochabamba and army and police forces that prevented them from doing that.

Footage shows a group of indigenous people with the coffins with the remains of the protesters, while their relatives were seen inconsolably crying. The coffins were seen covered with Wiphala flags.

There is still no confirmation of the total number of deaths, but it is estimated that the figure could rise.

Evo Morales announced his resignation after several weeks of protests against results of October 20 elections.
