  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: As part of the Argentine government's intensified hard-line policy towards guerrillas, security forces on Thursday (7 April) raided a hide out near Buenos Aires.

    SYNOPSIS: The raid was carried out on a building in Corrientes Avenue in the Western Suburb of Monte Grande, 46 miles (75 kms) from the centre of Buenos Aires. It was part of a general sweep of the area by security forces looking for guerrillas.

    In the heavy shooting that followed five guerrillas died, including two women. No casualties were reported among the raiding security forces. Following the raid, a military communique was published warning the public to be on the lookout for suspicious activity which might lead to the capture of guerrillas. The communique said the guerrillas were now on the defensive. There had been a spate of violence in the previous week with a government journalist kidnapped and killed, and a former Presidential press secretary kidnapped.
