Man spits at Chilean presidential candidate Michelle Bachelet

Police in Chile have arrested a man for spitting on presidential candidate Michelle Bachelet.

Ms Bachelet - who was president of the country from 2006 to 2010 - was campaigning in the country's northern Arica region ahead of November's elections.

Local newspapers said the attacker was a student who had supposedly been arrested before during protests over the education system.

Some of the footage in this video was filmed on mobile phone.

Rodrigo Pinto reports.
