The World : Rebels Hit Salvador Police

March 28, 1985

Salvadoran guerrilla commandos launched a mortar attack on the national police barracks in the capital, injuring four police officers and four civilians in the first such attack in 20 months. A Defense Ministry spokesman said the leftist rebels fired their mortars from a park about 200 yards away. They were fired on in return from guards on the barracks roof. Salvadoran military officials called the attack part of a rebel campaign to sabotage weekend national elections.
