Latin America Commemorates 50th Anniversary of Che Guevara's Death

IN PICTURES: teleSUR looks at the ceremonies across the continent marking the killing of the revolutionary leader.

In 1966, Che launched a guerrilla movement in Bolivia aimed at overthrowing the right-wing military regime of Rene Barrientos. After months of fighting against the U.S.-trained and backed Bolivian Army, Che was captured on October 8 and executed at the age of 39 one day later, after refusing to divulge information while being interrogated.
