Chile lifts its censorship of opposition magazines

The Chilean government informed the owners of four opposition magazines Monday that the prior-censorship measure imposed on them last week had been lifted.

The restriction was introduced under the state of emergency that was brought into effect again before last week's day of protest against the government of President Augusto Pinochet.

Three-fourths of Chile's population went without electricity Monday after nine simultaneous bomb blasts destroyed high-tension towers in the latest of a series of antigovernment attacks, police said.
