Information on an attack against the Estación X radio station in Lima, 1987 [PER11297]

The only references specifically referring to radio stations in Lima as targets of attacks in 1987 found among the sources currently available to the IRBDC state, without naming the targeted media, that six radio stations were occupied on 19 February 1987. The available sources report that members of the Movimiento Revolucionario Túpac Amaru (MRTA) occupied six radio stations in Lima and forced them to broadcast a message of the movement (Index on Censorship Apr. 1987, 38; Latin American Newsletters 5 Mar. 1987, 12).

Additional and/or corroborating information could not be found among the sources currently available to the IRBDC.
