Supporter of former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet holds up his portrait in Santiago.
An woman holds up a framed portrait of former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet in the La Dehesa neighborhood of Santiago, December 17, 2004, as supporters gathered outside his home. Pinochet is awaiting a ruling from a court regarding the appeal presented by his defense lawyers against the recent decision by Judge Juan Guzman Tapia to charge him with human rights abuses committed during his 17-year rule. A Chilean judge last Monday formally charged Pinochet with homicide and kidnapping in one of many pending cases related to human rights abuse. Another order of house arrest for him has since been lifted. REUTERS/Ivan Alvarado IA/GN
