The Sandinista army and U.S.-backed Nicaraguan contras are waging intense combat north of La Pinuela and elsewhere along the country's mountainous central spine. Western military analysts say each side is maneuvering for advantage before the Nov. 7 cease-fire deadline set by the plan.

A road leaving this teeming frontier town winds toward a series of cliffs that soar over river gorges. Etched into one cliff, with a sweeping view of wild, unspoiled jungle, lies an emblem of the problems facing Colombia's peace process. It is a massive sculpture, 30 feet high and 130 feet long, hewn from the rock. The artwork features a winged Manuel Marulanda, the leader of this country's largest rebel group, the FARC, approaching Simon Bolivar, South America's legendary liberator.

The Afghan government said its troops routed dissident guerrilla fighters and inflicted heavy casualties as fundamentalist rebels offered new cease-fire terms. Government troops said they captured heavy weapons, tanks and ammunition and that the fundamentalist Hezb-i-Islami was forced to evacuate a position in a Kabul school. The report could not be independently confirmed. A Hezb-i-Islami spokesman in Pakistan disputed the report.

Occupied by guerrillas and surrounded by the army, this village in the foothills of the Andes waits in terror. Members of the illegal, anti-insurgent "self-defense forces" that now operate in much of Colombia marched in briefly four months ago. The mercenaries--part of a movement whose operations were paid for originally by merchants and ranchers looking for protection against rebel extortion--announced that they intended to take control of this well-known rebel stronghold.

Guerrilla forces pounded a key government-held town in northwestern Cambodia with heavy guns Saturday after overrunning front-line positions and surrounding the town with more than 1,000 fighters. In a pre-dawn attack Friday, the guerrillas mined Route 69--the government's only access road to the town of Svay Chek--and seized positions east and west of town. Their ultimate objective is Sisophon, 13 miles to the south, a government military operations center for areas along the Thai border.

Last week the Chiapas guerrillas and the government reached a historic agreement in the most prominent of a series of six negotiations regarding the rights and culture of the indigenous people of Mexico.

As rebels tarry to the east and the president languishes in his palace, the 5 million people of Kinshasa wait and wonder: How will their drama play out? After six months of civil war in which the government's forces mainly just melted away, rebel leader Laurent Kabila and his guerrilla fighters are headed for the capital of this vast central African country. They aim to claim their greatest prize and wrest power from President Mobutu Sese Seko--of this almost everyone feels certain.

The muffled thud of artillery shells shatters the afternoon tranquillity in this northern Cambodian town, fresh evidence that a cease-fire in Cambodia's civil war is still an elusive goal a week after the United Nations began a major deployment in the country. Four people were wounded when the shells fell close to Kompong Thom, 125 miles north of Phnom Penh, on Friday night. It was the closest the fighting has come to this northern provincial capital in nearly two years.
