104-10414-10124: MEXICO CITY STATION HISTORY

Mexico City Station History: "Student demonstrations (based at the National University) continued through 1967 and 1968 and forced a showdown on the night of 2 October 1968 between the rioting students and the Mexican Army in the Plaza of Three Cultures in downtown Mexico City. It developed into a shooting contest and the students lost. Some 200 students trapped in the army cordon were taken to a military camp to cool off and answer questions. One station asset, LIEMBRACE-4 (201-110542), was included in this sweep when he was caught in the area (at station instructions to report on the demonstration) and could not get out."
