Three indicted in disappearances

From Times Wire Reports

A Chilean judge indicted a deputy of former dictator Augusto Pinochet and two others over the 1987 disappearance of five leftists believed murdered and hurled into the ocean from a helicopter.

They were the last people known to have disappeared at the hands of the 1973-90 regime.

Magistrate Mario Carroza indicted former deputy army commander and junta member Santiago Sinclair, former army secret intelligence service head Hugo Prado and Col. Marcelo Bustos, who is still in the military, over the disappearances.
