BUENOS AIRES, Argentinai
(M)-About 40 suspected left-wing]
guerrillas stormed a police sta-1
tion near La Plata before dawni
yesterday and nine of them died,
in the ensuing battle with police+
and army tr oop s, security
sources said. Four policemen
were reported wounded.
The reported assault, launch-
ed in the face of a deTermined;
effort by the miiltary govern-,
ment to wipe out leftist guer-
rillas, indicates the guerrillas
are still far from liquidated.
THE SOURCES said the at-
tackers drove in an auto cara-'
van to the station in the Arana
community 30 miles south of
Buenos Aires, shot and wounded
two police guards, then storm-
ed inside. A dozen or so men
there held off the attackers un
til about 100 reinforcements ar-
rived and killed nine suspected
guerrillas, they said. Two police
were wounded in the fighting in-
side, they said. The surviving
attackers fled.
In a separate incident in
Quilmes, a Buenos Aires suburb,
police said theyshotrand killed
two persons who fired upon them
after being stopped for an ident-
ity check.
On Monday, 12 guerrila sus-,
pects were reported killed in
various clashes with secuirity
forces, and anArgentine textile'
executive was reported slain by
left-wing terrorists.
THE LATEST killings brought
to 1,252 the reported death toll
so far this year in Argentina's
continuing political violence.
Security officials sav more
than half of the dead were sus-
pected of being guerrillas of two
extreme leftist groups-the Peo-
ple's Revolutionary Army, a
Marxist band known by its Span-
ish initials ERP; or the Mon-
toneros, supporters of former
strongman Juan Peron, who

I According to security sources,
there were at least 5,000 armed
guerrillas operating in Argen-
tina two years ago. This is con-
sidered a gargantuan lumber
for the nation's population of 25
million in an area half the size
of the United States.
