Police in Santiago use water canons to disperse demonstrators as Pope visits Chile

Chile’s capital, Santiago, witnessed violent scenes as Pope Francis is visiting the country, while Police used water canons to disperse demonstrators who were protesting against the Pope’s visit.

Shortly before the protests, Pope Francis expressed his sorrow and shame for the scandal of sexual abuse in the South American country’s Catholic Church, while he asked for pardon.

Many Chilean Christians have been disappointed since 2015 with the Pope following his appointment of Bishop Juan Barros to lead a small diocese in the south of the country.

Bishop Barros had been accused of protecting a priest who was found guilty by a Vatican investigation in 2011 of abusing adolescent boys for many years.
