  • Interview with Writer Isabel Allende

    Former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet was accused yesterday in Spain of actively participating in torture sessions during the crackdown that followed the bloody 1973 coup that put him in power. Two former aides to democratically elected president Salvador Allende, who was killed in the coup, presented evidence before Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon connecting Pinochet to the deaths and disappearances of 35 additional people.
