    Background: The warehouse of a United States Company in Montevideo was destroyed by fire on Tuesday night (15 Sept) and Uruguayan "Tupamaro" guerrillas are believed to be responsible. The blaze which did $4,000,000 (GBP1,600,000 sterling) worth of damage to the textile warehouse, is the latest in a series of arson attacks against American property in Uruguay.

    The commando group believed responsible for the first are from a left wing organisation which still holds two kidnapped hostages -- a United States soil expert and a Brazilian diplomat.
