All the stores of Movistar Chile (Telefonica) have been closed for a second consecutive day following a wave of violent demonstrations across the country. At least 11 people have died in the unrest, which was initially sparked by a metro fare hike in Santiago but has now spread to reflect widespread anger over rising living costs and inequality.
