The armed forces chief said Friday that Honduras has made plans to block the possible return of Nicaraguan Contras to Honduran territory when U.S. aid to the rebels runs out. Between late 1981, when the Contras began their battle against the leftist Sandinista government, and last year, most Nicaraguan rebels operated from base camps in Honduras. "There are great fears that Contras who fight in Nicaragua would seek refuge in Honduras," Gen. Humberto Regalado Hernandez said.

The number of Haitian refugees interdicted at sea in the past few weeks climbed past 1,000 Friday as Bush Administration officials scrambled to work out a resettlement plan with three Central American nations that have agreed to accept some of the boat people. Venezuela, Belize and Honduras have each agreed to take in a few of the refugees, some of whom have been held aboard U.S. Coast Guard cutters idling near the Windward Passage for more than two weeks.

Participants in a march for peace walked into the Nicaraguan capital Thursday and vowed to go through Honduras and El Salvador, where the governments have barred their entrance. "We cannot accept the decision of the Honduran government to forbid a march that is completely independent of all European and American political parties," said Peter Holding, an Australian lawyer and spokesman for the March for Peace in Central America.

The underground railroad that slipped millions of Central Americans across the U.S. border in the 1980s is now smuggling Asians and Africans desperate for a chance to reach the United States. Arriving in South America as tourists, they sneak through the Amazon jungle to Colombia--a country known for the quality of its counterfeiting--to obtain forged Central American visas. With those visas, they are less likely to be stopped along the way.
