  • Description

    Army troops moved into the city of Cordoba, Argentina Friday (August 25) as the people of the city called a one day strike to protest the shooting of escaping left-wing guerrillas on Tuesday.

    Fifteen of the guerrillas, four of them women, were killed and four others wounded in an abortive attempt to escape from a Naval Air Base in southern Argentina.

    The gun-battle was a bloody aftermath to the jail break in Patagonia the week before in which the nineteen guerrillas helped others to seize a local airport and hijack an Argentine airliner across the Andes to Santiago, Chile.

    The army troops had moved into Cordoba to prevent possible outbreaks of violence directed against the military government.
