HAYS DAILY NEWS PAGE 9 December 18, 1976 Officials Killed In Bomb Blast BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (UPI) — A shrapnel bomb believed planted by leftist Montonero guerrillas exploded during a packed defense ministry meeting 'Wednesday, killing dt least 15 high military and civilian officials and wounding 30 • others, police said. The dead included two Argentine diplomats, five high level military officers and at least one woman. The injured,' most with fractures, burns or gaping wounds suffered when the blast blew the flesh from their 1 bodies, were rushed to Buenos '•Aires hospitals by a convoy of '•ambulances and civilian vehicles commandeered by police. The Montoneros claimed responsibility forthe bombing in a call to UPI Wednesday night. The same guerrilla • group killed 21 policemen and wounded 70 others in a July 'bombing. Police said the device ex- 'plodedat7:15 p.m. (4:15 p.m. EST) in a small third floor •auditorium of a Defense •Ministry office building in "downtown Buenos Aires just as a large group of military 'and civilian officials sat down to hear a lecture by an -unidentified army lieutenant •colonel. ' The force of the blast, in a soundproofed and sealed 'room, lifted the occupants from their seats and smashed .them against the walls while a "blanket of buckshot sprayed 'across the room. High-level police sources 'said the bomb was a "shaped" charge using dynamite wrapped around a cartridge filled with shot and molded to •explode in a particular '•direction. • ' The sources said the bomb .was inserted between the ou^er wall of the concrete and glass building and the soundproofed inner wall. They said it was detonated at exactly the right time to do the maximum amount of damage, indicating the bombers had. detailed knowledge of the meeting plans. The sources said it had not yet been determined whether the bomb was a timed device or was detonated electronically. About an hour after the explosion, a woman called the Buenos Aires office of UPI and claimed responsibility for the blast in the name of the Montoneros' "Norma Arrostlto Commando". Miss Arrostito, a founder of the Montoneros and one of the group's most important leaders, died in a Shootout with security forces Dec. 3. The caller gave details of the blast's location that tallied with police accounts of the incident, which had not yet been published. The Montoneros, once the legal left wing of the Peronist party, were outlawed in 1975 by then-president Isabel Peron, ousted by the current military government last March.
