The Supreme Court granted bail Thursday to two former secret police officials pending their trial for the 1976 killings in Washington of a former Chilean ambassador to the United States and his American aide.

Retired Gens. Manuel Contreras and Pedro Espinoza were freed on $2,700 bail each. No trial date has been set for the two, charged with ordering the killing of Orlando Letelier and Ronni Moffit, who died when a remote-control bomb blew up their car.
