The explosion of a home-made bomb outside the headquarters of the media company Copesa, publisher of the daily La Tercera, and cyber-attacks on three news websites during the past few days have punctured the non-existent dialogue between the government and the vast, student-led protest movement that has rocked Chile since the start of the year.
