Protesters clash with police at rally

September 10, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Rock-throwing protesters clashed with police backed by water cannons and tear gas during a march paying tribute to victims of the dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet.

The government said 147 people were detained and a police officer was injured in the annual march marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 1973, putsch that brought Pinochet to power.

It was the first coup-anniversary protest since the former strongman died in December at 91.
