via Chile hit by violent anti-government protests | World news |

Protesters have clashed violently with police in Chile’s capital to decry President Sebastián Pinera’s policies, as a poll showed him to be the least popular leader in the two decades since the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship.

Demonstrators led by students demanding cheaper and better state education blocked roads and lit fires as police used water cannons and tear gas to quell the latest outcry against the conservative billionaire.
