Pablo Neruda's remains to be exhumed in Chile

Santiago: A Chilean judge has ordered the remains of poet and Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda to be exhumed for an autopsy seeking clues to the cause of his death.   

The exhumation was announced Friday by the foundation that manages his literary legacy.

The leftist poet, who died 12 days after the 1973 military coup that ousted socialist president Salvador Allende and brought General Augusto Pinochet to power, was long believed to have died of prostate cancer.
