Che Guevara In the remote corner of eastern Bolivia where Ernesto "Che" Guevara died, thousands gathered to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his death at the hands of the CIA-trained Bolivian military.

All four of Che's children, along with Bolivian President Evo Morales and Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera, and delegations from Venezuela and Cuba, came to pay their respects in the small town of Vallegrande on Monday.

"This is a historic moment, not just for me personally, but for all peoples who struggle for their liberation," Morales told the crowd.

"To remember the 50th anniversary of Che's death is to remember the struggle for dignity and national sovereignty, and against imperialism."
