Marxist leader said
to be suicide victim
By AP and Reuter
SANTIAGO-President Salvador Allende died last night
after Chile's armed forces toppled his socialist government and
bombarded the presidential palace from the air and the
ground in a six-hour battle.
Allende reportedly shot himself when the military tried
to arrest him.
EYEWITNESSES SAID they saw the 65-year-old Marxist president
dead with a bullet through his mouth.
Tanks blasted the palace after air force jets strafed the building a
dozen times with rockets.
Allende, supported by members
of his presidential guard and ci-
vilian police, held out for more
than two hours against heavy fire.
Then troops stormed the building.
THE PALACE received direct
hits and blazed for several hours.
The interior was apparently totally
The death toll in the coup was
not immediately known, but thous-
ands of shots were fired.
A group of journalists had been
allowed by the military into the
La Moneda presidential palace to
see the body of the president and
his press aide and personal friend,
Augusto Olivares.

the militarychiefs after Allende's
reported surrender said they had
intervened reluctantly to restore
constitutional order.
"It is the coarse abuse of the
values comprising the pillars of,
our constitutional rule which has
motivated this undesired interven-

"Our aim is to return the coun-
try to constitutional normality, and
to restore the ruined national econ-
omy and avoid a generalization of
the violence which threatened to
destroy the very foundations of our
nationality and bring Chileans to
an imminent civil war," the an-
nouncement added.
THE MILITARY called on the
population to hang out red, white
and blue Chilean national flags
from their windows to show their
approval of the coup.
