  • Description

    Fifteen leftwing guerrillas were killed and four wounded on Tuesday (22 Aug) during an escape attempt from a naval base at Trelew in southern Patagonia province of Argentina.

    A communique issued by the Navy said the only casualty among guards at the base was a security officer, wounded when he escaped from the would-be fugitives.

    The communique said the guerrillas, who made the breakout attempt were involved in an escape last week. They helped other guerrillas seize a local airport and to hijack an Argentine airliner across the Andes into Chile.

    The Argentine government has asked Chile to extradite ten guerrillas -- one of them a women -- who surrendered to the authorities after landing in Santiago.
