Chilean colonel assassinated

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP)-Three
men in blue overalls and yellow har-
dhats ambushed the car of the colonel
in charge of the army's intelligence
school yesterday and killed him with a
barrage of bullets from automatic
rifles.
Slain in the attack, blamed on left-
wing extremists, was Lt. Col. Roger
Vergara Campos, 43. His driver was
wounded.
AN ARMY SPOKESMAN said -
Vergara's car was cut off by a taxi and
a gray truck painted to resemble an
electric cormpany vehicle. He said the

killers leaped from the truck and fired
dozens of bullets into the car.
The gas tank was hit and as the car
burst into flames the gunmen walked
around the vehicle; shooting into it, the
government-controlled news agency
ORBE reported.
It said another army officer in a
passing auto rushed over as the killers
drove away and pulled the two victims
from the flames.
THE AMBUSH OCCURRED in the
wealthy Providencia residential area of
western Santiago during midday rush-
hour traffic.

MIAMI (AP)-Two policeman were
shot and wounded yesterday and bands
of rock- and bottle-throwing youths
roamed the streets of Miami's Liberty
City, which was rocked by deadly race
riots two months ago.
A county fire alarm officer said
parameadic units had treated an
estimated 16 people for minor injuries
in the first six hours after the violence
broke out.
DADE COUNTY officials activated
an emergency mobilization plan, but
"we're not referring to this as any sort
of racial problem," said Metro police
spokesman Sgt. Peter Cuccaro.
"We have some isolated incidents of
rock and bottle throwing," he said.
"We've got some problems out there
and we're addressing them."

Sgt. Fred Pelny, 39, was listed in
stable condition last night at Jackson
Memorial Hospital. He was shot at 3:47
p.m. while attempting to arrest two
robbery suspects in an incident

AT NIGHTFALL the second injured
officer, who was not identified, was
rushed to Hialeah Hospital were he was
listed in stable condition with a gunshot
wound in the shoulder, a hospital
spokesman said.

p.m. as he and his partner retreated to
their patrol car after a jeering crowd
disrupted their attempts to arrest two
robbery suspects, Ferguson said.
Police were advising motorists to

avoid the area of northwestern

and left more than $100 mi
property damage.
"We chased them (robbery s
