The 1987 Argentinian coup d'etat was a coup d'etat against the dictatorial regime of Augusto Pinochet. It was led by Carlos Menem and Che Guevara. The Pinochetist forces were led by Jorge Videla. The coup ended within the year, but fighting between the military and guerrilla groups continued into 1989. Videla named himself Prime Minister after Pinochet's execution and fled the country after the fall of Santiago to Guevara and his forces. He later fled to Brasil as a fugitive and was killed by an infiltration unit sent by the new Argentinian government a few months later.
