Youths In Spain Throw Red Paint At Peruvian Consulate

Associated Press, 04/29/97

BARCELONA - Spain (AP) - Three youths were arrested Tuesday after throwing 110 pounds of red paint at Peru's consulate in a protest over the killing of rebels in a commando raid in Lima. Troops last week stormed the Japanese ambassador's mansion in the Peruvian capital, where Tupac Amaru guerrillas were holding 72 hostages, and killed all 14 rebels. One hostage and two soldiers also were killed. Reports that the Peruvian commandos may have summarily executed some rebels even after they surrendered have drawn international criticism from rebel sympathizers. In Denmark on Monday, nine people occupied the Peruvian consulate in Copenhagen for two hours in a similar protest, and demanded an investigation into the allegations. They were arrested for trespassing. Six people were involved in the Barcelona protest Tuesday, police said. Three of them were arrested and charged with damaging private property.
