SCRIPT
Protesters were using laser pointers against the riot police during the latest round of demonstrations in Santiago on Saturday.
Footage shows laser pointers directed at vehicles and police officers, who were seen using water cannons and pepper spray to disperse protesters.
The laser pointers are used in protests to distract police, bring down possible drones and devices used by police forces and hamper facial recognition of protesters.
The current wave of demonstrations, considered to be the largest in decades, was sparked by the now-suspended metro fare hike.
The demonstrations have since evolved into a movement with wider grievances against the rising cost of living, pension reform and police conduct during demonstrations.
