Background: There was wide-spread international reaction to the killing of motor company executive Oberdan Sallustro, the managing director of the Argentine Fiat-Concorde company in Buenos Aires who was found dead there on Monday (April 10). Fiat workers around the world stopped work in his memory, while in Rome -- where the Italian press were almost unanimous in their condemnation of the argentine Government for its refusal to negotiate with Sallustro's kidnappers -- bombs were thrown at an Argentine Airline's offices there. No injuries were reported.
Senor Sallustro, 57-year-old Paraguayan-born Italian, was kidnapped three weeks ago. His kidnappers, believed to be a group of urban Marxist guerrillas, had demanded various conditions for his release -- including one million dollars (U.S.) worth of school equipment for allegedly under-privileged schoolchildren, and the release f so-called political prisoners. The argentine Government had refused to allow Fiat to negotiate with the kidnappers.
