  • Description

    In buenos Aires, a bomb attack on the home of Argentina's future naval chief-of-staff Admiral Armando Lambruschini on Tuesday (1 August) killed his 15-year-old daughter and two other people.

    SYNOPSIS: Fifteen-year-old Paula Lambruschini and the other victims died when a powerful bomb ripped through the building adjoining the apartment block where the Admiral and his family live in the Argentine capital. Police say the explosion occurred in the second floor of a nine storey block adjoining the building where the Lambruschini's had a third floor apartment. The damage was extensive.

    The Admiral and his wife escaped injury in the blast, but his daughter and two other people died and another ten were injured.

    The blast, one of the most powerful in eight years of guerrillas warfare, coincided with the start of President Jorge Videla;'s term of office as President outside the ruling three-man military junta, a re-structuring of government that marks the end of an era. Admiral Lambruschini is scheduled to take over from his present chief, Admiral Emilio Massera, as naval commander and a member of junta. In a speech later, President Videla said the attack was "the most cruel perpetrated by subversive terrorism". No-one has claimed responsibility.
