Chilean police used water cannon to disperse fans of the Chilean national football team, who gathered in the center of the capital, Santiago, on Tuesday to celebrate their team's semi-final 2-1 victory over Peru in the Copa America. A huge crowd had been waving Chilean flags and setting off flares in the city center’s Plaza Baquedano when police cut the celebrations short. Some of the fans were seen throwing projectiles at police vehicles.
