Nazi salutes at Pinochet's funeral

The Guardian reports on Pinochet's funeral: "The government agreed to a military funeral, a concession which failed to appease the general's supporters. More than 50,000 streamed into the Bernardo O'Higgins military school to view and caress the coffin, with some youths giving a stiff-arm Nazi salute". And: "The military school displayed its best pomp yesterday: flags at half-mast, a brass band, cadets in gleaming uniforms standing behind rows of seated guests, an A-list of the upper middle-class which formed the core of Pinochet's support". As so often, Steve Bell gets it just right.
