Bolivian soldier who killed Che Guevara dies at age 80

The Bolivian soldier who pulled the trigger to execute famed revolutionary guerrilla Ernesto “Che” Guevara died on Thursday at age 80, according to his friends.

Guevara, an Argentine physician, achieved mythic status as a leading figure in the Cuban revolution that won power in 1959 under Fidel Castro by toppling dictator Fulgencio Batista.

His small band was finally tracked down by Bolivian soldiers in 1967. Terán was chosen to kill him after orders to execute the already wounded Guevara, then 39, arrived from the capital.
