Chile reburied Nobel prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda's remains Tuesday after exhuming them to determine whether he was assassinated by late dictator Augusto Pinochet's regime -- a mystery that still lingers.

A casket bearing Neruda's remains was buried at his one-time home in the Pacific coast resort town of Isla Negra, where authorities had dug them up three years ago to analyze whether he was poisoned in 1973, as he prepared to flee into exile to lead the resistance against the coup that brought Pinochet to power.
