Police intervened and arrested protesters as the Chilean capital Santiago on Wednesday observed the 46th anniversary of the outsing of Chilean president Salvador Allende by General Augusto Pinochet.
A small group of women, organised by Coordinator Feminist March 8, had descended upon Santiago's downtown where later turned into the scene of clashes and unrest.
Elsewhere close to the National Stadium, used as a torture and detention facility during Pinochet's rule, crowds commemorated victims of the dictatorship by lighting candles and dancing to folklore songs. Speeches made by Allende were projected on the Stadium facade.
On September 11, 1973, Pinochet overthrew the socialist president Allende and essentially began one of the darkest eras in Chilean history.
