Chile: Police break up anti-govt demonstration on 5th day of unrest

Anti-government protesters were seen clashing with police on the streets of Santiago on Tuesday as demonstrations which have claimed the lives of at least 15 people entered their 5th day. Footage shows police attempting to disperse protesters with water cannons and tear gas and huge crowds of demonstrators thronged in the center of the Chilean capital bearing signs calling for the resignation of...

The demonstrations have since evolved into a movement with wider grievances aimed at addressing the rising cost of living, pension reform and police conduct during demonstrations.
