Leftists Cancel Salvador Talks

October 29, 1987|From Reuters

SAN SALVADOR — Leftist guerrillas today called off peace talks with the Salvadoran government, blaming it for the murder of a prominent human rights campaigner.

The Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN), in a statement telephoned to news organizations, said it would not go to a meeting set to begin in Mexico on Friday to discuss a cease-fire in El Salvador's 8-year-old civil war. The front said the killing Monday of Herbert Ernesto Anaya, president of the non-governmental Human Rights Commission, showed that the U.S.-backed government was intent on pressing on with the war despite its public pronouncements.
