  • This week marks the 40th anniversary of what's known as the other 9/11: September 11, 1973, when a U.S.-backed military coup ousted Chile's democratically elected president Salvador Allende and ushered in a 17-year repressive dictatorship led by General Augusto Pinochet. Joan Jara, the widow of Chilean singer Victor Jara, who has just filed a civil lawsuit in U.S. court against the former military officer who allegedly killed Jara 40 years ago, joins DN! Jara's accused killer, Pedro Barrientos, has lived in the United States for roughly two decades and is now a U.S. citizen. Jara's family is suing him under federal laws that allow U.S. courts to hear about human rights abuses committed abroad. Last year, Chilean prosecutors charged Barrientos and another officer with Jara's murder, naming six others as accomplices. We also speak with Almudena Bernabeu, an attorney with Center for Justice and Accountability, who helped file the Jara family's lawsuit last week.
