Chile's national monument at the epicentre of protests


A statue of General Baquedano in Chile, which was painted and repainted red during demonstrations, has become a symbol of sometimes violent protests in the country. But first: the beheaded teacher in France was the "victim of an angry social media campaign", according to Reuters. In other news, a cat geoglyph that dates back to 200-100 BC has been found in Peru's Nazca hills. The geoglyph emerged during maintenance work at the UNESCO World Heritage site.
