PARAGUAY-OVIEDO-DEATH

Supporters of deceased former general and presidential candidate of the UNACE party, Lino Oviedo – who died along with his bodyguard Denis Galeano and pilot Ramon Picco Delmas in a helicopter crash on February 2 – cry at the passage of the hearse that carries his remains during his funeral in Asuncion on February 6, 2013. The controversial Oviedo, 69, helped topple Paraguayan dictator Alfredo Stroessner in 1989. He died when the aircraft crashed en route to Asuncion while returning from a campaign rally in northern Paraguay, prompting claims of foul play. By Norberto Duarte/AFP/Getty Images.
