Flights To And From Santiago Halted As Riots, Arson Attacks Ensue

At least three people died in supermarket arson attacks in Chile’s capital Santiago on Saturday.

Santiago and other Chilean cities have been engulfed by several days of riots.

According to Reuters, soldiers shot two people during an operation to detain looters.

Protests entered their second week and intensified after a state of emergency was announced.

Protests over an increase in public transport costs prompted President Sebastian Pinera to reverse the move.
