SANTIAGO, March 30 (Reuters) - A man died, a police officer was wounded, and 122 people were arrested in Santiago on Saturday night in riots marking the anniversary of the 1985 police slaying of two leftist brothers during the Pinochet dictatorship, police said.

A 28-year-old died after he was shot by protesters who accused him of being a police infiltrator, a police spokesman told Reuters.
