The World

December 18, 1985

Cheering Nicaraguans gave a warm welcome to an International March for Peace caravan entering Nicaragua after being expelled under armed guard from Costa Rica. About 1,000 students and workers greeted the 217 marchers as they crossed the border, and a rally was held at the border checkpoint at Sapoa, 78 miles south of Managua. The marchers were criticized in Costa Rica, which accused them of being manipulated by Communist groups.
