Chile land owners killed in 'arson attack'

A Chilean landowner and his wife, who were involved in a land dispute with a local indigenous group, have been killed in a suspected arson attack.

Eyewitnesses said a group of masked men attacked the house of Bernard Luchsinger and Vivianne McKay, in the Araucania region which is at the centre of an indigenous land conflict.

Their charred bodies were later identified by relatives.

Interior Minster Andres Chadwick called the attack "a terrorist act".

John McManus reports.
