A BOMB blasted a Catholic Church in Buenos Aires last week days after an Argentinian priest, called, while saying Mass, for armed rebellion against the year-old Government of President Alfonsin.
The bomb in the church of Nuestra Senora de Lujan blew out the wooden doors and caused other slight damage, but there were no casualties.
In the controversial Mass. Fr Julio Trivino urged those present, including a number of army officers to "take up spiritual and, if necessary, material arms" against an attack on morality by "a corrupt and pornographic democracy".
Fr Trivino was referring to President Alfonsin's administration, which was elected a year ago last Tuesday.
His comments were interpreted as supporting the latest military junta. No-one has
yet claimed responsibility for the bomb, which was thrown from a passing car.
The Vatican mediation between Argentina and Chile over sovereignty claims to islands in the Beagle Channel has successfully produced a treaty.
The agreement recently initialled in Rome by representatives crf the two countries has now to be approved by the Argentine Congress and Chile's military junta.
The document awards all three disputed islands to Chile and established a fixed boundary in the surrounding waters.
The Pope, who mediated in the dispute for the first time in December 1978 when Chile and Argentina threatened to go to war, has promised to visit Argentina soon.
