    Background: With fears mounting around the world of increased assassinated and kidnapping of diplomats in Latin America a special Inter-America Committee has been formed to discuss judicial measures against terrorism The committee held its opening meeting in Rio De Janeiro on Monday (??? August).

    The meeting was attended by Brazilian Foreign Minister Senor Mario Gibson Barbosa, Colombian representative Senor Calcedo Castilla the Secretary General of the Organisation of American States, Galo Plaza.

    The committee was formed following the most recent terrorist activities in Latin America sparked of by the murder in Montevideo of Mr. Dan Mitrione, a United States adviser to the Uruguyan police. Fear are still held for the safety of the Brazilian Consul-General Senor Castilla and a United States technician Dr. Fly, both of them in the hands of kidnappers.

    These victims are the latest in a series of slayings and kidnapping of U.S. diplomats over the past few years and the America State Department recently issued a request to Congress for money and manpower to counteract the terrorism. This subject is expected to be high on the agenda at the Inter-American committee meetings.

    In the latest move to combat terrorism the United States Senate Appropriations Committee has approved one Million Dollars (500,000 sterling approx) for modifying 33 passenger vehicles with armour plate for protection against terrorist attacks.
