Chile: Santiago police detain five protesters during Mapuche demo

Police deployed a water cannon and detained five Mapuche protesters who had taken to the streets of Santiago on Monday to rally against the prosecution of 11 Mapuche people accused of killing an elderly Chilean couple in an arson attack in 2013. The Communist Youth of Chile organised the demonstration against the authorities’ decision to renew the trail, allegedly without concrete evidence... Еще, having called the arson ‘an act of terror’.
