In Chile, protesters marked another 9/11 Sunday: the 49th anniversary of the U.S.-backed military coup that ousted democratically elected Salvador Allende and led to a 17-year dictatorship led by General Augusto Pinochet. Chile’s President Gabriel Boric called for an intensive search of people who disappeared after the 1973 coup.
President Gabriel Boric: “Let’s relentlessly keep searching for the detained and disappeared 1,192 — 1,192 detained who went missing and that we still don’t know where they are. This is unacceptable, intolerable. We can’t normalize it.”
