World - Chile ordered to pay $2.7 million to 2010 tsunami victims

A Chilean court ordered the government Thursday to pay $2.7 million to the families of 20 people killed by a devastating tsunami in 2010. The court ruled the government was at fault in the victims` deaths because it canceled a tsunami alert initially issued after an 8.8-magnitude earthquake rocked central and southern Chile on February 27, 2010.
