Leftist rebels and representatives of the U.S.-backed Salvadoran government are to meet today in Caracas, Venezuela, to discuss a cease-fire, government officials and Roman Catholic church sources said. The church is mediating the talks. After a third round of talks Oct. 4-5, the government and Marxist-led rebels of the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front agreed to form two joint committees to study a cease-fire and other aspects of a regional peace plan signed Aug. 7. The cease-fire is to be the first step toward forming a transitional government to oversee new elections.
