Background: After the abortive coup on Friday (June 29) Santiago, Chile, has entered a period of relative calm. People have been out in the streets inspecting the damage caused by the insurgents - mainly bullet holes in the walls of the Presidential Palace, known as 'La Moneda'
Loyal troops are continuing to mount guard at the Palace and at the Ministry of Defence.
Chile's Marxist President Allende is meanwhile announcing changes in his cabinet (3 July), and, although there's a long tradition of non-intervention by the army in state affairs, it's widely believed that senior army officers may be brought in.
The Chilean Chamber of Deputies has turned down President Allende's request for a 90 day state of siege - a mild form of martial law - after last week's unrest.
