    A funeral has been held in the Chilean capital for Victor Jara, a folk singer and political activist who became a symbol of opposition to the military government of General Augusto Pinochet.

    Mr Jara was arrested, tortured and killed just days after the coup that brought Pinochet to power in 1973.

    Earlier this year his body was exhumed as part of the investigation into his murder.

    This is an amazing performance of “Te Recuerdo Amanda”, covered by Robert Wyatt.
