Breaking News

The Chilean army will punish Augusto Pinochet's grandson for criticizing the judiciary at his grandfather's funeral, the army said in a statement on Wednesday.

Pinochet's grandson, also called Augusto, was roundly criticized for his funeral speech on Tuesday, in which he praised Pinochet for overthrowing the socialist government of Salvador Allende in 1973, and attacked prosecutors who tried to bring the ex-dictator to trial for human rights abuses.
