  1. Pinochet victim count hits 40,018

    CHILE: Authorities officially recognised 9,800 more victims of the US-backed Pinochet dictatorship on Thursday, increasing the total number of people killed, tortured or imprisoned for political reasons to 40,018.

    A similar effort in 2004 determined that 27,153 survivors deserved monthly compensation from the government for human rights violations they suffered.

    Survivors of rights violations will get lifetime pensions of about £160 a month.
