LA PA, Bolivia (UPI) President Hugo Banzer ordered troops into the streets of La Paz Friday night in a political crisis touched off by the killing of a former interior minister. Heavily armed army vehicles and troops took up positions in the capital, guarding all principal intersections and putting on a display of power around the downtown national palace. The government, however, said in a statement that "the extraordinary military guard around the palace is a routine measure." Official sources said Banzer held a series of meetings with top military and political leaders in what the sources described as an intense effort to find new support for his rightist regime. Banzer took power in the land-locked South American nation in August, 1971, in a bloody military coup that ousted the left-leaning regime of Gen. Juan Jose Torres. The latest crisis was brought on by a warning from the right- wing Falange S o c i a 1 i s t a Boliviana party. It said the party would withdraw its crucial support of the Banzer regime over the killing of the former official unless the minister of the interior and justice resigns. The government said Friday that the former official, Gen. Andres Selich, had been killed by police officers who suspected him of plotting against the Banzer regime. ABINGDON MRS.
