Thousands protest in Puerto Rico for resignation of governor

Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets in Puerto Rico to demand the resignation of the island's embattled governor, Ricardo Rosselló.
 
It comes a day after Mr. Rosselló said he would not step down over a leaked online chat in which he and top aides exchanged obscenity-laced messages.
 
The texts included homophobic slurs as well as insults about victims of  the deadly Hurricane Maria in 2017.
 
Despite Mr. Rosselló saying he would leave office next year, at the end of his term, protesters have said he must stand down immediately.
 
They also accuse him of failing to rebuild the territory after the hurricane.
