Bolivia's Morales lauds Che on 50th anniversary of death

Bolivia's Morales lauds Che on 50th anniversary of deathBolivian President Evo Morales lauded Ernesto “Che” Guevara on Monday as he led commemorations 50 years to the day since the Cuban revolutionary leader was killed by CIA-trained Bolivian troops. “The best way to pay tribute to Che is to continue his struggle, an anti-imperialist struggle,” the socialist Morales told an audience including Guevara’s brothers and four children in the mountain town of Vallegrande in central Bolivia. The ceremony capped five days of special remembrance of the Argentine-born revolutionary in Bolivia, whose government ordered his execution on October 9, 1967, a day after he was wounded and captured in a firefight with a special CIA-trained unit of the Bolivian army.
