WASHINGTON (4)- A for-'
mer Chilean ambassador to the
United States and a woman col-
league were killed yesterday
when a bomb ripped through
their car as they drove past the
embassy he once occupied.
Killed by the blast were Or-
lando Letelier, 44, ambassador
from Chile during the regime
of the late Marxist President
Salvador Allende, and Ronnie
Karpen Moffitt, 25, who worked
with Letelier at a research in-
stitute. Moffitt's husband, Mi-
chael, was discharged from'
George Washington University
Hospital after treatment.
