Bolivia's public prosecutor has released a video of the terrorists (in Spanish):
The Guardian's Ireland correspondent writes the following piece. Rory Carroll obviously couldn't bring himself to do it:
Man shot in Bolivia linked to racist gang
"It is now understood that Dwyer's associates were members of a group responsible for racist murders and attacks on indigenous Bolivians.
Dwyer's family are seeking an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding his death. It appears that Dwyer was drawn to the group after becoming a Facebook "friend" of gang leader Rozsa Flores, who was openly antisemitic and is believed to have been backed by right-wing elements in the wealthy city of Santa Cruz.

Bolivia was once a haven for members of the Croatian Ustashe fascist government. They fled to South America after the second world war, fearing retribution for siding with the Nazis and committing war crimes. Their passage to countries such as Bolivia was organised by Croatian clergy operating out of the Vatican.
Rozsa Flores was of Hungarian-Bolivian background, and at the start of the conflict in former Yugoslavia he sided with the right-wing Catholic Croatian militia who were responsible for some of the worst atrocities at the start of the civil war. He led an armed group which attracted foreign right-wing elements and used the nickname "Franco" in honour of Spain's right-wing dictator.
Dwyer would not be the first Irishman to find himself mixed up with right-wing extremists with links to Croatian militias. During the civil wars of the 1990s, at least one Irish national from the prosperous Killiney area of south Dublin lost his legs after fighting with the ultra-right HOS Croatian militia in Bosnia.
Rozsa Flores, 49, had been a left-wing journalist but turned neo-Nazi and joined Croatian forces when the civil war broke out in former Yugoslavia. He was a suspect in the murder of British photographer Paul Jenks and of a Swiss journalist who are both believed to have uncovered information about atrocities committed by Rozsa Flores and his militia.
He was part of the notorious "Zenga" unit of the Croatian militia, which is blamed for ethnic cleansing in former Yugoslavia in 1991. Since then, he had continued to recruit and organise right-wing extremists. His antisemitism is believed to have led him to convert to Islam, despite being homosexual.

It is thought that Dwyer fell in with the gang after meeting eastern European supporters of Rozsa Flores working as security staff in Ireland. (See: MICHAEL DWYER’S SECURITY CONTACTS)
Dwyer, although described by friends as a pleasant young man, had a self-confessed obsession with guns and martial arts."
Elöd Tóasó, Hungarian/Romanian would-be assassin, posing with a sniper rifle last December at the Hotel Buganvillas, Santa Cruz, Bolivia, where they stayed for 2 months, cost: $100-$250 per day...
"Elöd Tóasó, the 29-year-old Hungarian-Romanian apprehended in an antiterror operation on April 16 in Santa Cruz, was the "communications link" of the international mercenary terror cell dismantled by the police, and was tasked with spying and telephone tapping.
In reality, far from being a "young adventurer" in search of a daily living, as described with paternal innocence by the Hungarian ambassador in La Paz, Matyas Józsa, Tóasó received military training in Bucharest, along with the Irishman, Michael Dwyer, who was killed in a hotel in Santa Cruz in a firefight with Bolivian police two weeks ago.
Tóasó, who appears in a photo published by the independent Cochabamba newspaper Opinión holding a sniper rifle with a high-precision telescopic sight, became a mercenary under the influence of Michael Dwyer and also that of the Hungaro-Croatian Bolivian Eduardo Rózsa Flores, leader of the mercenary cell.
The picture was taken in the middle of last December in the Hotel Buganvillas, one of the most exclusive in Santa Cruz, where the armed group stayed for more than two months at cost to a third party, currently unknown, whom Rózsa Flores described in an interview in Budapest last September as "the Bolivian financiers" and providers of the weapons.
According to the management of the five-star hotel, the terrorist group booked in the Buganvillas under false identities. "
