QUITO (Reuters) – An indigenous group in Ecuador that has led massive protests to reinstate a fuel subsidy announced on Saturday that it has decided to hold direct talks with President Lenin Moreno, the first sign of a potential breakthrough in a dispute that has triggered more than a week of unrest.

Ecuador’s capital Quito was rocked early on Saturday in a tenth day of clashes over Moreno’s austerity plan, with police firing tear gas at protesters and access roads to the city’s airport blocked.
