  • Description

    Argentine's former president, Juan Peron landed today at the heavily guarded Ezeiza airport after seventeen years in exile. Thirty-Five thousand troops with tanks and armoured cars were massed around the airport to dissuade his supporters from entering.

    The landing was made in driving rain, but the three hundred Peronists allowed on the airfield by the Military government waved their arms and chanted Peronist songs. Outside, supporters tramped across muddy fields to try and avoid the soldiers but there were still some clashes. The security operation was designed not only to deter pro-Peron demonstrations, but also to former dictator from his many enemies.
