Chilean demonstrators faced off anti-riot police during a protest at Plaza Italia in Santiago, Chile.
The protests were triggered after the fall of a protester into a river channel, allegedly pushed by a policeman, during a protest a night earlier.
The incident shocked Chile and unleashed a new wave of criticism against Carabineros (militarized police) for the repression during the demonstrations. The independent National Institute of Human Rights (INDH), which has monitored the social outbreak since it began in October 2019, assured that the young man is stable and asked the Carabineros to clarify the situation.
