Ecuadorean artist Oswaldo Guayasamin began his ascent toward world renown thanks to Nelson Rockefeller and the State Department, but he has no friends these days in the U.S. Embassy. Although French President Francois Mitterrand visited his home last month, and Mitterrand's wife is a regular house guest, some Americans denounce him as a leftist ingrate guilty of a perfidious insult to the United States.

A joint report on Ecuador by two human rights groups cites a rise in torture, illegal detentions and other abuses, accusing the government of President Leon Febres Cordero of doing little to punish such behavior by police and the military. The report by Americas Watch and the Andean Commission of Jurists also faults U.S. officials for a reluctance to criticize Ecuador's human rights record. It suggests this is due to Febres Cordero's free-market economic policies, support for U.S.

Doctors claimed partial success Tuesday after performing laser surgery on 2-year-old Daniela Maldonado, who traveled to Irvine from Ecuador for treatment of a disfiguring birthmark. One laser was used during a 2 1/2-hour treatment at the Beckman Laser Institute in Irvine to trace and seal off the blood vessels which cause the birthmark under the skin of Daniela's chin and chest. "She is pretty cranky right now," said her uncle, Romulo Maldonado.

Secretary of State George P. Shultz arrived Wednesday to celebrate the inauguration of Ecuador's third consecutive democratically elected president but was greeted by an officially sanctioned wall mural that depicts the United States as a symbol of death.

A 2-year-old girl from Ecuador will undergo an hourlong laser treatment to remove a disfiguring birthmark from her face at UC Irvine next week, and the brief surgery is likely to change her life, a relative said Friday. For Daniela Maldonado, who will undergo treatment at UCI's Beckman Laser Institute on Tuesday, the state-of-the-art procedure "is pretty much a miracle," said the girl's aunt, Joy Maldonado of La Crescenta.
