Turkish baby named after Che Guevara
A Turkish couple in the eastern province of Batman have honored Argentinean rebel leader Che Guevara by naming their newborn son after him.
Ernesto Che Guevara, born Sept. 1, coinciding with World Peace Day, had been hospitalized due to bronchitis, pneumonia and a lung infection.
The baby’s unemployed 25-year-old father said he had read all the books pertaining to the revolutionary and added that because he had found inspiration in the leader’s struggle, he promised to name his first son after him.
The baby’s parents said their son would survive his current illness, but they added that they were waiting for the results of a blood test to determine the cause of the infections.
