Fourteen refugees captured or killed in a raid in Argentina



This is a telegram from the US Embassy in Argentina addressed to the State Department in Washington and the US Embassies in Uruguay, Chile, and Brazil. It mentions that around fourteen refugees from South American countries have been either captured or killed in a raid in an Argentine province on 29 March 1976. The Embassy reports that Chilean leader of the Revolutionary Left Movement (MIR) was abducted during the raid and was, probably, assassinated afterwards. Brazilian national, Maria Regina Marcondes Pinto may have, also, been captured by Argentine security forces and handed over to Chilean security forces.
