The World

December 29, 1985

Honduran soldiers, armed with automatic rifles and tear gas, prevented about 200 peace marchers from entering the country, witnesses said. Participants in the March for Peace in Central America arrived at La Fraternidad, on the Nicaraguan-Honduran border, and more than 100 Honduran soldiers refused to let them cross into Honduras. "Those people will not enter Honduras . . . and that is definite," Interior Minister Arnulfo Pineda Lopez said. Last week, march organizers said they had received a telex from Honduran officials granting them permission to cross Honduras.
