Chile: Allende's family agree to exhumation

The family of former Chilean president Salvador Allende have agreed that his remains may, if necessary, be exhumed again as part of the investigation into the circumstances of his death.
“We will collaborate and do all that is necessary, present our testimony and if a new exhumation is necessary, an exhumation will be done,” said the late head of state’s daughter, Sen. Isabel Allende [not the novelist!]
“We have to set the example if we’re asking that other actors provide complete cooperation,” Sen. Allende said, abandoning her earlier opposition to a second exhumation of her father’s remains.
