See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Messages expressing the shock and grief of Latin American Jews over the assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy were sent to the United States Embassy here by the DAIA, central representative body of Argentine Jewry, and the South American Executive of the World Jewish Congress. The DAIA message said in part, “If the U.S. lost an exceptionally gifted personality, the free world has lost one of its outstanding figures. We join our voices to all of those who feel horror at this crime perpetrated by a senseless hand of those preaching hatred and violence and the promoters of blind fanaticism.”
