Chilean beekepers protest with thousands of bees

Protesters, geared with protective device, placed wooden beehives with thousands of bees inside outside La Moneda government palace.

Police detained at least three people and removed the beehives from the street.

"We were protesting because of the drought," protester and beekeeper Jose Iturra said to local media. "There would be no life if bees die. That's what we wanted to highlight."
