Dictator's Fans Open Pinochet Museum in Chile





Admirers of former dictator Augusto Pinochet inaugurated a museum in his honor on Friday, a move they hope will burnish the image of a man reviled by much of the world.

Visitors to the four-room museum can see the general's uniform, sabers, books and knives — even his collection of toy soldiers.

Guided visits for groups of 12 will start on Monday and more than 150 people have registered to visit.

Pinochet's widow, Lucia Hiriart, said the inauguration shows that"little by little justice is being done" for her husband.
