Chile to amend constitution, a key demand of protesters

The Chilean government has agreed to write a new constitution to replace one dating back to the Pinochet dictatorship, bowing to demands of protesters. The Interior Minister said the president, cabinet members and political allies had agreed Congress should lead the process of re-writing the constitution. The announcement follows three weeks of protests sparked by a hike in metro fares.
