Chile's authorities placed Santiago under curfew for third day as death toll has risen to 11 and almost 1,500 people were detained in the worst outbreak of social unrest in decades.

Chile ordered an overnight curfew for the third day in a row on Monday as violent demonstrations and looting that left 11 people dead continued for a fourth straight day.

Army general Javier Iturriaga announced the curfew would last from 8:00 pm to 6:00 am as protests originally against a hike in metro fares turned into anger at President Sebastian Pinera and the military.
