A memorial at Sheridan Circle, at the other end of Embassy Row, is a sobering counterpoint. It marks the spot where former Chilean ambassador Orlando Letelier was killed by a car bomb along with his American assistant, Ronni Moffitt. Letelier, who served under President Salvador Allende, stridently opposed the regime of Augusto Pinochet, who overthrew Allende. A member of Chile's secret police was convicted in the assassination.
