Pinochet regime tortured 35 000

A year-long investigation into state-sponsored torture in Chile has documented that about 35 000 people were abused during the 1973 to 1990 military regime. The three volume-long report includes hundreds of new claims about torture tactics, ranging from sexual abuse using dogs, to forcing suspects to watch as family members were sodomised or slowly electrocuted.
