Orlando protesters call for Rossello's resignation

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello is vowing to stay in office despite protests calling for his resignation.

Hundreds gathered in front of the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration building in Orlando, Florida to demand he step down.

Protests against Rossello were sparked by leaked controversial and vulgar text messages between the governor and his closest allies and by a federal probe into government corruption on the island.

A peaceful demonstration that drew thousands to the streets of San Juan on Monday turned hostile in the evening when protesters and police clashed, injuring 21 law enforcement agents, officials said.

The unrest was cited by a cruise ship company for its decision to cancel a scheduled stop by one of its vessels in the island's capital city.

Rossello said on Tuesday he will stay in office despite the protests.
