Description

On November 3rd, 1995, the military weapons factory of the city of Río Tercero in the province of Córdoba, Argentina, explodes. The executive branch declares it was an accident, but the warehouses are intentionally blown-up in order to hide pieces of evidence of arms trafficking to Croatia and Ecuador in which the president Carlos Menem was involved. Seven people were killed and more than three hundred wounded, and the city crammed with shards and warfare ammunitions which citizens brought to their homes as souvenirs.

El 3 de noviembre de 1995, explota la fábrica de armamentos militares de la ciudad de Río Tercero en la provincia de Córdoba, Argentina. El poder ejecutivo declara que se trata de un accidente pero los depósitos son en realidad detonados intencionalmente con el fin de ocultar pruebas de contrabando de armas a Croacia y Ecuador en las que estaba involucrado el presidente Carlos Menem. Siete personas resultaron muertas, más de trescientas heridas y la ciudad quedó repleta de esquirlas y municiones de guerra que los ciudadanos llevaron a sus casas a modo de souvenir.
