A state of emergency has been declared in parts of Chile following violent protests and looting.

Hundreds of people have been arrested and three people were found dead following a fire set at a supermarket in Santiago on Sunday.


The protests were sparked by an increase in subway fares. Authorities declared a state of emergency in five provinces and imposed a curfew to try to control the unrest.

Meanwhile, in West Jordan, Nichole Coombs has one thing on her mind.

“My son Carter is in the Santiago East mission,” she said.
