Chile: Arrests of Former Soldiers and Secret Police Officers

Chile Reports from Chile say that nearly 100 former soldiers and secret police officers have been arrested this week.  The crimes stem from the period of the Pinochet dictatorship, which lasted from 1973 to 1990, and some of those arrested worked for the intelligence service that ran torture centers where hundreds of people were killed or disappeared.
