Was Chilean poet Pablo Neruda murdered?

By: Laurie FACHAUX | Gideon Long

International forensics experts have concluded that Pablo Neruda didn't die of cancer, as currently stated on his death certificate. The Chilean poet and senator from the Communist party died in 1973, just two weeks after the military coup led by Augusto Pinochet toppled the leftist government of Salvador Allende. The experts' conclusion increases speculation that Neruda may in fact have been murdered. Our correspondents report from Chile.
