MEXICO CITY (AP)
-- A marriage certificate recording revolutionary
Ernesto ``Che'' Guevara's 1955 wedding has been returned to a Mexican
registry office months after it was stolen.
noted the document was missing in February, when an
anonymous tipster called the registry, saying it had been stolen several
months before. Police began an investigation.
On Tuesday, the
certificate -- which records Guevara's Aug. 18, 1955
marriage to Peruvian Hilda Gadea -- was returned to the registry in an
unmarked envelope with no return address.
Guevara, a doctor,
was working intermittently at a Mexico City hospital
when he married Gadea. He later divorced her and remarried in Cuba.
said the document would be returned to the registry
book from which it was removed several months ago, the government
news agency Notimex reported.
