The exhumation of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda began Monday to determine whether he died of cancer or was poisoned by the Pinochet dictatorship he strongly opposed.

The process started with the breaking of the crypt housing the remains of the Nobel prize winner under the supervision of Judge Mario Carroza, lawyers and a dozen forensic experts, AFP witnessed.
