The clip Tragedy of 1974 from Waking the Dead (2000)

...on the outskirts of Minneapolis.
A car bomb completely destroyed a vehicle carrying two Chilean nationals...
...and apparently, a young American woman.
The FBI is refusing comment.
However, early reports indicate the bombing was carried out...
...by Chilean government agents.
The agents were trying to stop Francisco and Gisela Higgens...
...who have been touring around the US...
...speaking out against Chile's military dictatorship.
Minneapolis police believe the bomb was detonated by remote control...
...and that all three occupants of the car were killed instantly.
The bodies have been removed to Minneapolis community general hospital.
As for the young American woman...
...it's not yet officially known, but we have learned...
...that she was Sarah Williams, an activist from Chicago...
...who was also working with the sanctuary movement.
Sources tell us that she had made several trips to Chile herself...
...assisting in bringing political refugees into the US.
Obviously, the death of a young American girl on American shores...
...will throw a whole new light on both the sanctuary movement...
...and on the government's relationship with the Chilean regime.
I'm Bill Haughland, reporting live from Minneapolis.
