ISRAELI NEWSPAPER PRINTS RARE CHE GUEVARA PHOTOS

An Israeli newspaper printed what it said were previously unpublished photographs Thursday of the final days of revolutionary Che Guevara.

One photo showed a bare-chested Guevara lying in a cot soon after he was executed by Bolivian soldiers in 1967.

Others of the 11 black-and-white photos in the Haaretz newspaper's weekend magazine show the rebels in rare moments of relaxation and the rebel leader in his trademark black beret drawing water from a well.

Still others showed the bodies of the dead guerrillas draped over the backs of mules and horses as they are carted away by soldiers.

The newspaper said it obtained 70 photographs in all, but refused to say how they were acquired. Editors said the newspaper spent a month authenticating the pictures through laboratory tests and expert evaluations.
