CHILE - The family of Salvador Allende sought exhumation

The family of former Chilean President Salvador Allende sought exhumation April 13 as part of the investigation to establish if he committed suicide during the coup of September 11, 1973, as want the official version, or was murdered. Justice has opened an investigation in January into the death of Allende.
