Suspicious fire ruins Indian leader's family home

Suspicious fire ruins Indian leader's family home

The family home of one of Chile's top Indian leaders has been destroyed in a suspicious fire.
The blaze reduced the home to ashes just as Jose Santos Millao and his family were attending the funeral of seven firefighters who had died in a wildfire. Chilean President Sebastian Pinera blames that deadly wildfire on what he calls terrorism by Mapuche Indians.
Millao condemned Pinera's invocation of a tough terror law against his tribe even before the fires' causes are determined amounts to a "declaration of war for our people."
Millao's family house burned down Sunday, apparently not long after a group of armed hooded men burned down a retired military officer's home.
Police chief Gen. Ivan Bezmalinovic of the Araucania region says these kinds of crimes are not normal for Chile.
