The World : 57 Nicaragua Rebels Quit

January 28, 1985

Fifty-seven Nicaraguan rebels, defying their leaders, turned themselves in to authorities in the first reported surrenders under a government amnesty, military officials of the leftist Sandinista government said. A spokesman said 52 rebels of the Democratic Revolutionary Alliance surrendered last Thursday and Friday in the town of Rama-Kay in Zelaya province and five rebels from the Nicaraguan Democratic Force surrendered Saturday in Wiwili in Nueva Segovia province. Leaders of both U.S.-backed rebel groups rejected the amnesty, issued last week.
