Chile extends curfew to quell looting after earthquake

A curfew in Chile's second city, Concepcion, has been extended until midday (1500 GMT) as troops struggle to contain looting after the earthquake.

Dozens of people were arrested after looters fought over goods and set fire to a department store.

The authorities have announced they are setting up an air bridge to deliver aid from the capital, Santiago, to Concepcion.

Saturday morning's 8.8-magnitude quake killed at least 723 people.
