Dictator term ban from Chilean books
Opponents have accused the right-wing Chilean government of attempting to "whitewash history" by deciding that General Augusto Pinochet should no longer be referred to as a "dictator" in school textbooks.
Instead, the National Education Council says his rule must now be called a "regime".
They accused the government of attempting to airbrush history by ignoring the era's widespread human rights abuses.
More than 3,000 Chileans disappeared or were killed during General Pinochet's rule between 1973-1990, according to figures reviewed by an official commission, and the legacy of the period is still bitterly disputed.
