Senator Isabel Allende, one of Allende's three daughters, met with judge Mario Carroza and asked him "to go forward with the investigation to find out the truth about his death." Socialist president Salvador Allende died on September 11, 1973 during the siege of La Moneda, the presidential palace, by military forces lead by General Augusto Pinochet. The official version was that Allende had committed suicide - with a rifle given to him by Cuban leader Fidel Castro - to avoid falling in the hands of the soldiers. After an initial autopsy, his remains were returned to his family in a sealed coffin which initially was buried in Vina del Mar and later moved to the capital, Santiago. Last January, Chile's Supreme Court reopened various cases on human rights violations, among them the investigation on the death of the former president. Rumours have floated for years that Allende did not commit suicide. His supporters believe he died fighting.

The pathologists and the investigating judge removed Allende's casket from the family's crypt in the General Cemetery in Chile's capital. Allende's two daughters were present, each carrying a rose. Judge Mario Carroza ordered the autopsy after discrepancies were found between the initial police and military reports on his alleged suicide. Allende's bone fragments will now be studied to determine how many weapons were involved in his death. An international team of experts in forensic pathology will now study his remains at the request of Allende's family and investigative Judge Mario Carroza. Genera; Augusto Pinochet's overthrow of the hemisphere's first elected socialist leader began nearly 17 years of heavy-handed dictatorship in Chile in which thousands of suspected leftists were kidnapped, tortured and killed. The Allende family has trusted the version told by the only apparent eyewitness, Dr. Patricio Guijon, who was one of Allende's doctors and shared his final moments on 11 September 1973, as the presidential palace was under furious attack. Allende had ordered his comrades to surrender, but instead of following them out, went alone into the Hall of Independence on the second floor. Guijon said he too stepped away from the rest, to grab his gas mask and happened to look into the hall at the moment Allende pulled the trigger of an AK-47 assault rifle Guijon's account supported the official version put out by the military - that Allende committed suicide using the gun his friend Fidel Castro had given him. But doubts arose immediately, partly because Pinochet's military rushed his initial autopsy, performed in an irregular way only hours after his death, and then secretly buried Allende in a closed casket. Also, many prominent leftists refused to believe their martyred hero would take his own life. The exhumation took about 45 minutes on Monday morning. His body was carried a short distance to the Legal Medical Service, Chile's official coroner's office. Carroza said Allende's daughters have already provided blood samples to help confirm the identity through DNA analysis at a foreign laboratory. This is the second exhumation of Allende's body. He was buried during a rapid night time ceremony with only his widow present in a crypt near Chile's coast, where the casket remained for 17 years. Then, with democracy's return in 1990, his remains were moved to Santiago. Experts disagree on how much damage the corpse suffered in that move, which was complicated because the casket had fallen apart.

The concert is part of a year long celebration marking the centennial of Allende's birth. The Chilean leader was born on 26 June 1908 and died on 11 September 1973. Colombian pop star Juanes and Spanish musicians such as Joaquin Sabina, Victor Manuel and Miguel Bose, among others, headlined the event, which took place at the symbolic National Stadium, where thousands of suspected leftist sympathisers were detained following the 1973 military coup in which Allende was overthrown. Before the concert, some of the artists met Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and Allende's daughter, Isabel Allende, at the presidential palace of La Moneda. Isabel Allende, a highly-acclaimed novelist, was the main driving force behind the concert. Allende and the artists were given a tour of the palace, including the newly restored offices of the former socialist leader. The artists later headed to the stadium for first day of the concert, entitled "A hundred years, a thousand dreams." Argentinean artists Pedro Aznar, Brazilian musician Chico Cesar and Spanish rock veteran Miguel Rios were also performing at the event. They shared the stage with local groups such as Sol y Lluvia, famous in the 70s for their protest songs against General Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship. Around 25-thousand people attended Friday's concert, which was opened by veteran Chilean pianist Valentin Trujillo. Saturday night's concert will feature Juanes and Spanish duo Ana Belen and Victor Manuel as the main attractions.

In a solemn affair current President Michelle Bachelet led the ceremony at a memorial to disposed democratically elected leader Salvador Allende inside the presidential palace of La Moneda. Allende was overthrown by Pinochet's coup on September 11, 1973. Bachelet was joined by relatives of the former president as they placed flowers at the site where the late leader was found dead following the US backed coup. Bachelet said Allende's examples was a guide to the whole of Chilean society. "The examples such as those of President Allende contribute to this gathering because the result, the morals, the democratic values are today the foundation of our coexistence," she said after the ceremony. Bachelet efforts were praised by the Allende family. "I think the president's gesture this year has been beautiful. Everyone was very moved and it has been very nice to share it" Salvador Allende's daughter Isabel Allende said. Bachelet also remembered those who died during the coup and in the years that followed under the government of Pinochet. Pinochet led a military junta that overthrew elected Marxist President Allende in 1973 and launched a brutal campaign to root out opposition. According to an official report, during the military dictatorship that followed 3,197 people were killed for political reasons, including some 1,200 who "vanished", probably kidnapped and killed, then buried in unmarked graves leaving relatives no word on their fate. Thousands were also jailed and tortured or forced into exile. Relatives of the victims marched through the streets on Friday before laying wreaths and floral tributes at a statue of the former leader outside Santiago's Ministry of Justice. Meanwhile on Thursday night police and demonstrators commemorating the anniversary of the coup clashed in the capital. Violent demonstrations are common in Chile throughout the month of September as different sectors of society mark the anniversary of the coup.

Lagos hailed his predecessor as an example to the nation during a presentation ceremony attended by Allende's widow and daughter. This is the first time a monument has been dedicated to the Marxist president killed during the coup led by General Augusto Pinochet on September 11 1973. But the ceremony was disrupted by protesters in the five thousand strong crowd, many of them members of the Communist party, who had come to express their anger at what they deem to be a lukewarm handling of the Pinochet case. They shouted "Traitors" and threw eggs at the V-I-Ps, forcing officials, including Allende's daughter Isabel Allende to run for cover.

Wide of Allende monument outside presidential palace STORYLINE: Police and protesters clashed in the streets of the Chilean capital Santiago on Tuesday - the anniversary of the day in 1973 when General Augusto Pinochet seized power in a military coup that prompted socialist President Salvador Allende to commit suicide rather than surrender. Street protests began early on Tuesday with bonfires and violent clashes with police. One station in suburban Santiago was attacked and hooded activists occupied a major avenue, resulting in 10 arrests. A memorial ceremony for Allende on Sunday also ended in violence after human rights activists spoke of the unresolved legacies of a military regime that killed more than three-thousand people. Meanwhile, Allende supporters placed flowers and flags outside the entrance of the Presidential Palace that Allende used to enter and exit during his stint as president. Hundreds of marchers walked through the streets, carrying banners and bouquets to remember the former Socialist leader. They chanted: "Allende will always be president." Allende's daughter and granddaughter were among marchers outside the palace where a monument to the former president stands. "I believe the example set by Salvador Allende is more valid than ever. More than anything else, where there is social inequality, he is an example of integrity, loyalty and unity," said Isabel Allende, a Socialist Party senator and daughter of Salvador Allende. An appeals court in Santiago on Tuesday denied an appeal to reopen an investigation into Allende's death. Supporters of the former president had challenged the findings of an investigation that ended last year. Authorities in December concluded last December that Allende committed suicide to avoid capture by General Pinochet's forces. The court on Tuesday refused to reopen the case and confirmed the findings of the probe.

Isabel Allende pleaded for legal investigations into charges of torture and human rights abuse to go on. And she expressed sorrow that much had been made of allegations about Pinochet's private fortune and claims of corruption, while his conduct in power had been partly ignored. "Great attention was made on his fortune and how he made it as well as the corruption. It is terrible, people were ready to keep the human violation secret and keep Pinochet in power, but his corrupted regime and the money he robbed could not be accepted." she said at a hotel in Madrid. She said that Pinochet could not be forgiven by the people while so many questions remained about the people who died mysteriously or disappeared under his government. "There cannot be any reconciliation while the legal process is still open. We have to keep in mind that still, people have not been found and that families are still looking for their loved ones", she said. She said Pinochet did not deserve any sort of official funeral. "No way. He was a dictator, he was not elected by popular sovereignty," she said.
