His political party once spurned capitalism and launched guerrilla warfare against the U.S.-backed government of El Salvador. This weekend, though, Hector Silva, a leading representative of El Salvador's FMLN--the former guerrilla group turned political party--has come to Southern California armed with a far different ideology, based on the importance of a free global economy.

Both middle-aged with neatly trimmed beards, dark suits, white shirts and red ties, the two leading candidates for mayor of this capital looked remarkably similar during three debates for Sunday's election. Listening to them, it seemed barely a historic footnote that incumbent Mayor Hector Silva, 53, is running for ex-guerrillas of the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front, or FMLN.

President Alfredo Cristiani declared a state of siege Sunday after leftist guerrillas and army troops battled in the capital on the second day of a guerrilla offensive that has left hundreds of dead and wounded. Cristiani also announced a dawn-to-dusk curfew for the first time since 1981, when Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front guerrillas launched a nationwide "final offensive" that was supposed to win the war for them.

El Salvador's lengthy civil war appeared to have moved into a new stage Wednesday after at least four powerful bombs were set off in affluent neighborhoods of San Salvador, the capital, late Tuesday. Half a dozen people were injured in the blasts, and damage to nearby shops and restaurants was reported to be extensive. The explosions marked the addition of a new type of urban terrorism to the already brutal battles that have been fought largely in the countryside and smaller cities.

OPINION
August 14, 2006
I was disappointed to read "A New Rebellion in an Old Conflict" (Aug. 9). Although the report quotes the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front's condemnation of the deadly assault on police officers by armed loyalists, it neglects to point out that it came almost two weeks after the attack, and only after strong public pressure. The article also fails to mention the front's fumbling of the situation by first denying any knowledge of the shooters and later accepting their active involvement in the party.

GALAXY AT ISIDRO METAPAN When: 7 p.m. PDT. Where: Estadio Cuscatlan, San Salvador, El Salvador. On the air: None. Update: This is the Galaxy's fourth and final game in the first stage of the CONCACAF Champions League tournament, and the Galaxy, with a 3-0-0 record, has won this stage and earned a berth in the quarterfinals in March. As a result, the Galaxy is expected to play mostly reserves against Isidro Metapan and rest its best players because the Galaxy plays its Major League Soccer regular-season finale Sunday in Seattle against the Sounders.

Los Angeles and Berlin became sister cities at the height of the Cold War in 1967. Now AirBerlin will link the two in a more direct way. The airline plans to begin nonstop flights between the German capital and Los Angeles in May. Germany's second-largest airline after Lufthansa says in a statement that the new service will run three times a week. A random search in May (May 19-26) showed an LAX-Berlin round trip for about 700 euros, about $960. The airline also is increasing Berlin-New York flights to daily service.
