Peruvian Embassy Occupied By Danish Leftist Activists

COPENHAGEN, April 28 (AFP) - Six Danish left-wing activists were arrested Monday after briefly occupying the Peruvian embassy here in a protest at last week's killing of the 14 hostage-takers at the Japanese ambassador's residence in Lima, police said.

The activists who said they were from the Danish committee for the liberation of MRTA prisoners in Peru spent two hours in the embassy where staff had slipped out as the protest began.

After shouting slogans against the Peruvian government the activists were dislodged by Danish police who had sealed off the area surrounding the embassy. They were later released after being charged with the illegal entry into a private residence.

The Danish committee had earlier demanded in a communique that a probe be opened on the circumstances surrounding the deaths of the 14 Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA) rebels in Lima.

They also asked that the Danish government to denounce the rebels' killing by crack Peruvian troops who stormed the compound last Tuesday ending the 127-day hostage drama.
