  • Description

    THREE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED AND 25 WOUNDED IN DISTURBANCES IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, FOLLOWING THE RETURN FROM TWO YEARS EXILE OF EX-PRESIDENT JUAN BOSCH.

    IN SEPARATE INCIDENTS A STUDENT WAS SHOT BY A SENTRY DURING A DEMONSTRATION AND TWO OTHERS WERE CUT DOWN BY AN UNKNOWN GUNMAN.

    UNITED STATES OFFICIALS IN WASHINGTON ON MONDAY VOICED CONCERN THAT ALLEGEDLY ANTI-AMERICAN STATEMENTS BY EX-PRESIDENT BOSCH MIGHT IGNITE A NEW CRISIS IN THE REPUBLIC, AND DISRUPT PLANS TO END POLITICAL UNEASINESS THERE.

    YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) PROVISIONAL PRESIDENT DR. HECTOR GARCIA-GODOY QUASHED RUMOURS THAT A NEW COUP D' ETAT WAS IMMINENT AFTER A LONG MEETING WITH UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR, MR ELLSWORTH BUNKER.

    HIGH-SCHOOL STUDENT DEMONSTRATORS BLANCO CALGANO, AGED 18, WAS SHOT IN THE BACK BY A SENTRY IN FRONT OF THE NATIONAL PALACE ON MONDAY, AND DIED INSTANTLY.

    THE OTHER FATAL SHOOTINGS OCCURRED IN THE NORTHERN SECTOR OF THE FORMER CONSTITUTIONALIST ZONE.

    CALGANO WAS AMONG A GROUP OF TEENAGE DEMONSTRATORS CHANTING ANTI-AMERICAN SLOGANS IN PROTEST AGAINST THE OCCUPATION OF THEIR SCHOOLS BY TROOPS OF THE INTER-AMERICAN PEACE FORCE. REPORTS SAY HE WAS SHOT AFTER JEERING AT THE GUARD WHILE DEMONSTRATORS WERE DISPERSING.

    STUDENTS LATER CARRIED THE DEAD BODY OF CALGANO THROUGH THE STREETS.

    MEANWHILE, JUAN BOSCH VISITED A SANTO DOMINGO HOSPITAL TO SEE SUPPORTERS RECEIVING TREATMENT FOR INJURIES SUSTAINED IN RECENT DISTURBANCES. HE WAS GIVEN AN EMOTIONAL WELCOME.

    MR BOSCH SAID HE WANTED TO STRENGTHEN HIS PARTY TO A POINT WHERE IT COULD WIN AN ELECTION.
