'Che's' Tania returns to Cuba

The remains of 'Tania', the only woman to have been with Ernesto 'Che' Guevara during his ill-fated guerrilla campaign in Bolivia, have been returned to Cuba.'Tania', whose real name was Tamara Bunke, was killed a few days after 'Che' Guevara in 1967; her remains were discovered earlier this year.

Her remains, and those of four Bolivian guerrillas who also died in the campaign, will be laid to rest alongside those of Guevara in Santa Clara in Cuba.
