Chile protests seek Obama apology for CIA meddling

Protesters are also criticising new nuclear energy accord between Chile, US.



Santiago: Several hundred people have protested in the Chilean capital ahead of Monday`s visit by President Barack Obama.

Communist Party leader Guillermo Teillier says political, cultural and social representatives have signed a letter to Obama. It asks him to apologise for US intervention that destabilised Salvador Allende`s socialist government in Chile before the 1973 coup that began Gen. Augusto Pinochet`s dictatorship.

Protesters are also criticising a new nuclear energy accord between the US and Chile that focuses on US training of Chilean nuclear engineers.
Senate opposition leader Carolina Toha said on Sunday that the deal makes no sense in light of Japan`s ongoing nuclear crisis.
