    Background: A 600-strong group of Argentine police has been carrying out a military-style operation against guerillas in the north-western Tucuman province of Argentina. They have found the first rural guerrilla operations centre to be discovered since General Juan Peron returned to the Presidency last year.

    Argentina's most powerful urban guerrilla organisation -- the People's Revolutionary Army (ERP) -- is believed to have founded the camp. It indicates that the ERP has spread its activities to the countryside.

    Official reports say police are pursuing 50 guerrillas, armed with automatic weapons, through jungle and mountainous terrain. The police are being aided by helicopters. An area around one of the suspected camps has been declared a 'zone of insurrection'.

    At least a hundred buildings were raided in the provincial capital of Tucuman and the surrounding countryside. Police arrested 220 people. They later released all but 40, who were suspected of being linked with the ERP.
