Chile orders exhumation of Pablo Neruda

It's over a year since I last wrote that the remains of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda might be exhumed in an investigation into his death in 1973. Now the Fundación Pablo Neruda has announced that a judge has ordered the exhumation - but still without a definite date.

As before, I'm still inclined to think that it was coincidence that Neruda succumbed to his cancer shortly after the military coup, but we'll see if anything new comes up.
