WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A Chilean terrorist group that had often attacked
LDS targets in Chile has been removed from the U.S. State
Department's list of "foreign terrorist organizations," the State
Department announced on Friday. The Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front
Dissidents, which was also known for attacking U.S. businesses active
in Chile, was removed because it had not engaged in any "terrorist"
acts for the past two years.
The change was one of a number of changes announced on Friday in the
first review of the list in two years. The list was mandated under a
1996 law and now contains 28 organizations, including four remaining
Latin American groups.
