  • Description

    A massive police security cordon surrounded the Central Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Thursday (19 December) during a memorial service for Senora Eva Peron ...second wife of the late President General Juan Peron.

    Police found a bomb in the square and detonated it. But there were no reports of casualties.

    The memorial service was attended by President Maria Estela Peron and senior Government officials. It was conducted by the Archbishop of Parana, Monsignor Adolfo Tortolo.

    Six thousand workers packed the square, shouting and throwing leaflets ... as security men watched in helicopters patrolled overhead.

    Eva Peron ... a cult figure in Argentina ... died at the height of her popularity in July, 1952. Her body has been in the crypt of the Presidential Residence in Buenos Aires since it was returned from Madrid after 19 years of exile. Senora Peron's body lies in an open coffin beside the body of the General.
