The remains of three Chilean diplomatic officials shot at the Chilean Embassy in Costa Rica are returned to a church in Santiago in 2004. Today marks the 10-year anniversary of the shooting, when after being transferred from his post guarding the Chilean Embassy, Costa Rican police officer José Orlando Jiménez stormed the embassy, killing 42-year-old Consul Cristhian Yuseff, 44-year-old First Secretary Roberto Nieto and 25-year-old Secretary Rocío Sariego before taking his own life.
