Riot police clash with protesters in Chile

Hundreds of people took part in Tuesday's march through Santiago in memory of Matias Catrileo, who was shot by police in 2008 during a violent confrontation to evict activists from land they had seized, claiming it belonged to the indigenous community.

Members of the Mapuche community wore traditional attire for the march while their supporters carried banners and chanted that Catrileo's death was not in vain.

The short bout of violence that ended the march arose when a handful of protesters starting shouting and throwing stones at police.

More than 10 people were arrested.

The Mapuche, which means "people of the land" in their native Mapudungun language, resisted the Spanish conquest for 300 years and their desire for autonomy remains strong.
