Chile cancels climate, trade summits amid protest chaos

Oct 31, 2019 10:34 IST

As clashes left more than a dozen people dead, hundreds injured and businesses and infrastructure damaged, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera has been forced to cancel two major international summits. There were violent faceoffs between the riot police and demonstrators in Santiago on Wednesday with shops vandalised and buildings set on fire. Demonstrators, who have been protesting for nearly two weeks now, have been demanding economic equality and better public services.
