Peruvian Rebels Make TV Broadcast
LIMA (Kyodo) - Three men, believed to be rebels of the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement, broke into a cable television station in Colombia on Wednesday night and had the crew broadcast a message that the group will retaliate against Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori, several Peruvian papers reported Saturday. In the broadcast, the three masked men claimed that more than one of their comrades are still alive after the raid on the Japanese ambassador's residence here and are being held by authorities. The three later ran away and no one was hurt, according to the papers. The government has announced that all 14 Tupac Amaru members died on April 22, when the military raided the residence where the rebels had held 72 VIPs hostage for four months.
