    Background: After a week in the hands of Uruguay's Tupamaros Urban Guerrilla movement, Judge Daniel Manelli--the man who has handled most of recent guerrilla cases--was released unharmed by his captors this week.

    But at the same time, unrest in Montevideo continued at a critical level with a new wave of diplomatic kidnappings, violent demonstrations in the streets....and more Tupamaros suspects coming before the courts.

    Judge Manelli was filmed back at his home in Montevideo on Wednesday (August 5). He had been released the previous night at suburban crossroads near his house.

    He was kidnapped on July 28 by two men and a woman, who broke into his home and carried him off in front of his wife and young daughter. The Tupamaros claimed that the judge had been exhaustively interrogated on police investigation methods, including the use of torture.

    The previous day, another intended kidnap victim, United States Embassy Second Secretary Gordon Jones, visited a Montevideo court in an effort to identify a suspected kidnapper.

    Student unrest--which has been linked with Tupamaros activity-- meanwhile continued in the streets of the city, where police had to use teargas to break up a demonstration on Wednesday.
