CHILE : 54 Arrested, 7 Cops Injured In Annual Protest.

         2 nights of protests in Santiago resulted in 54 arrests...and 7 injured police...during the nation's annual 'Day of the Young Combatants'.
        The demonstrations commemorate 2 brothers killed in 1985 while protesting the military dictatorship.
       Hooded youths clashed with police early Saturday morning.
       But officials report that this year's protest was 'calmer' than 2012...when 220 were arrested and 28 were injured.
