50 years ago in Chile Salvador Allende, the democratically elected Socialist President of Chile, died in a military coup led by General Pinochet who ushered in a brutal and repressive regime that ruled Chile for 17 years. During his reign of terror, he tortured and killed thousands of his political opponents and forced over 200,000 people into exile around the world.
