A glass monument to revolutionary icon Ernesto “Che” Guevara was destroyed by gunfire less than two weeks after it was unveiled by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s government.
Images of the toppled and shattered 8-foot-tall glass plate, which bore an image of Guevara, were shown on state television Friday and appeared in newspapers.
The monument on an Andean mountain highway near the city of Merida was unveiled Oct. 8 by Vice President Jorge Rodriguez and Cuba’s ambassador to Venezuela to mark the 40th anniversary of Guevara’s death in Bolivia.
