At the news conference the Bolivian army leader introduced two prominent guerilla leaders, Mario Suarez, a university student, and Oswaldo `Chato' Peredo. It was their capture that the Bolivian army said attributed to the downfall of guerilla resistance.
The Bolivian government has for some time been engaged in conflict with guerilla groups, including forces from other Latin American countries. It was in Bolivia that the Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara lost his life.
