Background: Sixteen left-wing guerrillas were killed in Argentina on Tuesday (24 May) after an army raid on a suburban home in Buenos Aires. Three soldiers were also reported wounded.
SYNOPSIS: The killings took place in a house in the southern suburb of Monte Grande. Army troops surrounded the house before dawn after a tip-off from neighbours that a guerilla meeting was being held. Gunmen fired at the troops from the house and from a parked car.
Several guerrillas escaped during the fierce gun-battle. Afterwards troops found the bodies of the 16 guerrillas, four of them women. There were also large quantities of arms and documents. Three other separate guerrilla attacks also occurred on Tuesday (24 May). Two policemen were shot dead as they approached car in the southern Bernal suburb and another one was gunned down in central Buenos Aires as he left his home. In the third incident a bomb blast wrecked a synagogue in the central Flores district, the second attack in two weeks. Police said there were no injuries.
