A man kneels in Santiago on Wednesday as people hold up a banner bearing a portrait of former Chilean president Salvador Allende on the 43rd anniversary of his election. Allende won the presidential election in 1970, but was toppled by former Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet, who led a bloody coup against Allende’s socialist government in 1973, ushering in 17 years of dictatorship.Sep 06, 2013
