An indigenous movement in Ecuador leading violent protests over fuel price hikes reversed course and said Saturday it has accepted a proposal for direct talks with President Lenin Moreno. An umbrella grouping called CONAIE, which on Friday had rejected the idea of negotiating, said it made the decision after consulting with its members. More than a week of demonstrations in the capital Quito have left five people dead and nearly 2,000 injured or detained.
