  • Description

    In Buenos Aires, six branch offices of the leftwing section of President Juan Peron's own political party, were damaged by bomb explosions in the early hours of Saturday (26 January) morning. They were among fifteen bomb attacks that took place at about the same time in three of Argentina's main cities.

    The attacks were mainly against the homes and offices of left-wing supporters and organisations. The explosions in Buenos Aires were at six offices of the "revolutionary" wing of President Peron's Justicialist Movement. Earlier in the week, President Peron's Government had announced its intention to launch an all-out campaign to crush "left-wing guerrillas". The "revolutionary" Justicialists had opposed the introduction of any new laws to combat the guerrillas.

    One of the seven bombs in the capital had exploded in the toilet of a snack bar frequented by leftwing Peronists. It injured a 32-year-old woman.

    In Bahia Blanca, 330 miles (550 kilometres) from Buenos Aires, the bomb attacks were made against offices belonging to the Communist Party, the Workers Socialist Party, and a finance company.

    In Rosario, northwest of Buenos Aires, bomb explosions damaged three homes. Two of them belong to lawyers specialising in housing, whose names had been linked with leftwing organisations.
