Chile orders arrests in Victor Jara murder

Court seeks justice for 1973 killing of Chilean singer who became a great icon of Latin American music.

    After nearly four decades, justice may be a little closer for one of the great icons of Latin American music.

    A judge in Chile has ordered the arrest of eight former military officers for their part in the torture and murder of Victor Jara.

    Seven men have already been arrested and an international warrant has been issued for an eighth man, who currently lives in the United States.
