BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – At least three people were injured, including a security guard who was shot, during clashes between police and protesters on the ‘Day of the Young Combatant’ in areas of Chile’s capital Santiago, on Wednesday night.

Protesters in Villa Francia, where the 21-year-old guard was shot in the hand, started fires and hurled various objects at police vehicles.

In the municipality of San Bernardo, a police officer reportedly suffered a broken jaw after being stoned. Local press reported that another policeman was hit in the face by around 16 pellets.

Reportedly, several arrests were made.

Day of the Young Combatant remembers Rafael and Eduardo Vergara, who were murdered by Pinochet’s military regime in 1985.
