Salvadoran rebels ambushed a military convoy, killing as many as nine soldiers and wounding 21, civilian and military sources said. The attack, the worst in several months, began when a rebel mine exploded under the first truck of a three-vehicle military convoy a mile from the town of San Isidro in combat-torn Cabanas province, 40 miles east of San Salvador. The sources said heavy fighting followed the ambush before the rebels were driven off.

Twelve people, mostly children, died and about 20 were injured when an explosion ripped through a village near a geothermal power plant in western El Salvador, Red Cross and army officials said. The blast, which officials said was caused by an accumulation of underground gases, wrecked homes in the village of El Barro in Ahuachapan province. "The ground opened and steam came out, throwing hot rocks," according to a local Red Cross spokesman.
