Violent protests in Chile continue despite metro fare cancellation

Protests and violence in Chile spilled over into another day despite the president cancelling a rise in metro fares that has prompted violent demonstrations.

Officials in the Santiago region said three people died in fires at two looted supermarkets early on Sunday - among 60 Walmart-owned outlets that have been vandalised, and the company said many stores did not open during the day.
