Students in Chile have resumed their protests for education reforms, with more than 100,000 people taking to the streets of the country.
In the capital, Santiago, riot police fired tear gas and water cannon to break up the march, after being targeted by hooded protesters.
Eight officers were injured and 109 people detained, authorities say.
Students say Chile’s education system, traditionally viewed as the best in Latin America, is profoundly unfair.
They say middle-class students have access to some of the best schooling in Latin America, while the poor have to be content with under-funded state schools.
Local media say the massive turn-out in Santiago puts the first big march of the year among the largest in the last two decades.
Students have been campaigning for about two years, but this was the first nationwide protest in 2013.
