Clashes as Chile marks 40th anniversary of coup
SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Protesters marking the 40th anniversary of Chile's military coup are clashing with police, throwing rocks and gasoline bombs and setting up flaming barricades.
Police arrested 13 people early on Wednesday and said a police officer was injured in overnight clashes.
The anniversary of the 1973 coup that brought the dictator Augusto Pinochet to power is often marked by violence.
Mr Pinochet oversaw a fierce aerial bombardment of the presidential palace on Sept. 11, 1973. Socialist President Salvador Allende committed suicide rather than surrender.
