"brutally beaten and shot by soldiers"

A mourner snaps a picture next to a painting depicting Chilean folk singer Victor Jara during his funeral in Santiago in 2009. Jara was buried 36 years after he was brutally beaten and shot by soldiers, in a murder which was considered a warning to anyone who challenged Gen. Augusto Pinochet's authority during the long years of Chile's dictatorship.
