Bolivia's minister of defense has resigned after a government crackdown involved tear gassing hundreds of indigenous protesters which killed a baby and arresting a large group of demonstrators.

The protests, supported by Evo Morales, the president, are against the construction of a highway through a national park and a legally designated indigenous zone.

Al Jazeera's Craig Mauro reports from Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
