Deputies punch each other SANTIAGO (Reuter) - Communist and opposition deputies punched each other and rolled fighting over the floor of Congress last night during a special commission hearing into an alleged plot to lower the price of Chilean copper abroad. The brawl broke out when Christian Democrat deputies charged that Communist Mines Minister Orlando Canturias was involved in the plot. The government of Marxist President Salvador Allende recently arrested seven men, including several foreigners, who allegedly tried to arrange illegal copper purchases which would lead to a drop in the price of copper-Chile's biggest foreign-currency earner. The meeting was resumed later after tempers cooled.
