Protesters clash with armored police trucks in Chile

Chile's President Pinera has rejected the notion of resigning and believes he will reach the end of his term in just over two years despite intense anti-government protests that are roiling the country, according to an interview with the BBC.

Pinera said he was "democratically elected by a huge majority of Chileans," and that while he accepted responsibility for entrenched inequality that was driving the protests, he was not "the only one." At least 18 people have died and thousands been injured after two weeks of rioting, protests and looting.

The protests started over a hike in public transport fares but have broadened to include poor pensions, the high costs of utilities, medication and road tolls as well as patchy public services such as healthcare and education.
