— The retired head of the Salvadoran National Guard admitted
in court today that he knew that his troops, five of whom were

had been involved in the torture and killings of civilians when he
was appointed to lead the guard in 1979. ...

of the executions, rapes and disappearances in the 12-year civil
war in El Salvador. ...
