Many activists held in protest

Chile: Scores of demonstrators have been arrested during protests by students against the government of rightist President Sebastian Pinera.

The protesters called on the new government to restore a “solidarity” scheme that allowed low-income students to attend college, and urged Mr Pinera to increase a paltry £38 emergency grant for students made homeless by the devastating February 27 earthquake.
