Following a coupof 11 September 1973, Pinochet took o²ce in Chile, overthrowing President Salvador Allende'sdemocratically elected socialist unity, and ending civil rule. America's support was crucial for the coup andsubsequent power consolidation.On 23 August 1973, Pinochet, being its General Chief of Sta³ since early 1972, had been promoted to theCommander-in-Chief of the Chilean Army by Allende. By a joint decree in December 1974, but with nosupport from one of its inciters, General Gustavo Leigh, the military junta ruled Pinochet as its SupremeLeader. After his rise to power, Pinochet persecuted leftists, socialists, and policy critics and executed 1,200to 3,200 people, interned 80,000 people, and tortured tens of thousands of people. The Chileangovernment estimated that 3,095 were executed and forced to disappear. At the request of the Pinochetregime Operation Condor founded his 60th birthday in late November 1975.Characters used: 1243 / 15000
