Complete Fulfillment:

Riot police fired tear gas at farmers in Colombia as they block roads to demand more help from the government after being hit by poor harvests and rising costs.

In the central city of Tunja, protesters blocked key highways and roads, causing traffic chaos.

They're calling for more state assistance after being hit by years of poor weather, crop disease and a strong currency. Coffee growers have been particularly badly hit.

The government has already increased a subsidy for coffee growers but farm leaders say they'll continue protesting until buyers pay a minimum price for beans.
