- Story Text: An army officer and a police officer were killed in a gun battle with left-wing guerrillas in Buenos Aires on Wednesday (2 April). In another incident in the city, the bodyguard of a trades union leader was shot dead.
The police sergeant was killed when the car in which he was travelling was attacked by Montonero guerrillas with rifles and pistols.
The attack took place outside an army barracks, and Lieutenant-Colonel Horacio Colombo was fatally injured in the ensuing gun battle in which soldiers from the barracks took part.
Wednesday's deaths brought to 114 the number of people killed in political violence in Argentina this year.
