Chile - Pinochet Inidictment Blocked

NPR's Gerry Hadden reports from Santiago that a Chilean court has blocked an indictment of former dictator Agosto Pinochet on murder and kidnapping charges. Attorney's pressing the case against the 85-year-old general are appealing the decision to the Supreme Court which will hear the case in the coming weeks.
