Chile police continue to use pellet rounds despite suspension

Antofagasta, Chile - Police in Chile continue to crack down on protests with contentious projectiles, despite the official suspension of their use this week in all but the most extreme situations.

The projectiles - circular rubber and metal projectiles called "balines" - have caused the majority of the more than 280 eye injuries incurred since the protests over inequality and the ensuing crackdown began in October, according to health professionals.
