Bodies of Argentines Killed in New York Attack Arrive Home

BUENOS AIRES The bodies of the five Argentines who died in the New York City terrorist attack last week arrived back in their native city of Rosario this Monday, where their funerals will be held.

The bodies of Diego Mendoza, Diego Enrique Angelini, Alejandro Damian Pagnucco and Hernan Ferruchi were taken to the Cocheria Caramuto funeral home, while the final farewell for Ariel Erlij will be held at a private cemetery in the city of Perez, on the southwest side of town.

Dozens of people walked to the doors of the funeral home to pay tribute to the victims, five friends who were in New York to celebrate the 30th year since they graduated from Rosario Polytechnic Institute.

The hearses left with a police escort from Ministro Pistarini International Airport in Buenos Aires, where the bodies arrived from New York in the early hours.

Family members of the victims who had gone to New York to identify the remains also arrived on a flight to Rosario after a stopover in Buenos Aires.

Last Tuesday on the New York island of Manhattan, an immigrant from Uzbekistan, radicalized by the Islamic State jihadist group, deliberately ran over cyclists and pedestrians with his pickup truck, leaving eight people dead, including the Argentines.

Argentine President Mauricio Macri traveled to New York Sunday night to begin an official visit to that city, which will include, besides meetings with business owners and executives interested in investing in his country, a tribute to the Argentine citizens slain in the attack.
