Chileans protest pro-Pinochet tribute
SANTIAGO — Chilean police fired tear gas and clashed with demonstrators who protested against an event honoring a former military officer imprisoned for killings during the dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet.
At least seven people were injured, including six police officers, during the clashes Monday night outside an exclusive club in Santiago, where about 1,000 protesters had congregated.
Protesters hurled rocks at police, and nine demonstrators were arrested.
Chilean human rights activists organized the protest to condemn the gathering in honor of ex-Brigadier Miguel Krassnoff, who is serving a 144-year prison sentence for crimes related to the kidnappings and killings of government opponents during Pinochet’s rule from 1973 to 1990.
Several hundred people attended the tribute.
Many famine victims afraid to return home
DOLO — Lush patches of green dot this once-barren land, allowing goats and camels to graze. A nearby field is full of large, purple onions thanks to a U.N.-funded project.
But many Somalis - women, mostly - living in a stick-hut camp in this border town say they won’t return home because they’re afraid of hard-line Islamist militants stalking the country, and of being unable to feed themselves and their children.
Still, the fate of 13 million people affected by East Africa’s worst drought in decades remains in doubt.
