Thousands of student protesters staging a mass demonstration against rising public transport costs clashed with police in Santiago on Friday.

Footage shows police using water cannons and tear gas to disperse protesters as well as demonstrators erecting barricades and facing off against police on the street. Drone footage also shows the scale of the protests.

The protests were sparked by a rise in public transport fares which demonstrators see as unacceptable when faced with rising living costs. A number of metro services were halted across the Chilean capital during the demonstrations as protesters vaulted barriers and damaged ticket machines.
