Pinochet movie stirs controversy in Chile

Families of those killed or 'disappeared' under military ruler call for documentary tribute to be banned.



    Sympathisers of the former Chilean military ruler Augusto Pinochet plan to honour him at the screening of a new documentary this weekend.

    But relatives of some of the thousands killed or "disappeared" under the late leader, who ruled Chile for 17 years after leading a coup in 1973, have called for the film to be banned.
