An old killing has come back to haunt the government of President Mauricio Funes, scarcely a year after he took office as El Salvador's first leftist leader. Roque Dalton, the nation's most famous poet, was killed 35 years ago by comrades in the leftist guerrilla movement that fought in the long civil war. Now the slaying has emerged as a thorny problem for Funes just as his government prepared a calendar full of official ceremonies commemorating Dalton, who would have turned 75 this month.

Leaders of El Salvador's left-wing guerrillas, its right-wing armed forces and its civilian political parties joined together Saturday to commence a formal cease-fire in the civil war that has brutalized this country for 12 years. The ceremony at this capital city's fairgrounds marked the first time that the polarized political forces have met together in their own country in pursuit of a common goal.

With ringing church bells and exploding fireworks, religion and rock 'n' roll, thousands of Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front guerrillas and their supporters celebrated the end of a 12-year civil war Thursday under a searing midday sun in downtown San Salvador. Rebel banners draped the Metropolitan Cathedral, where two rebel radio stations--Venceremos and Farabundo Marti--broadcast live to combatants in the mountains.

On a day meant for celebration, nearly everyone in the crowd of 3,000 at MacArthur Park took time to remember a relative or friend who had died during 12 years of revolution and civil war in El Salvador. Seventeen-year-old Mario Roman sold tiny blue flags emblazoned with a peace dove; he remembered an uncle and a cousin who were tortured and killed by the army in 1980. Nearby, Castula Candido, 78, joined the crowd in singing El Salvador's national anthem.
