30 years ago a country quite like ours......BBC NEWS | World | Americas | Chile marks Allende's 1973 death:
Commemorative services are being held in Chile to mark the death of Socialist President Salvador Allende in a military coup in 1973.

Mr Allende's widow attended a religious service inside the presidential palace where he died on 11 September.

The commemorations come as Allende's successor, Gen Augusto Pinochet, fights a series of legal battles after the Supreme Court stripped him of his legal immunity.

He is accused of being responsible for kidnappings and torture during an international crackdown on political opponents known as Operation Condor.
