US says Cuba supplies El Salvador guerrillas

The US accused Cuba Tuesday of directly assisting Communist groups and leftist guerrillas with men and weapons to help overthrow the ruling centrist junta of violence-plagued El Salvador. Officials from the State and Defense Departments told a House subcommittee there is evidence the Fidel Castro regime is helping infiltrate men and weapons into El Salvador through its northern neighbor, Honduras.

"The Honduras believe, and our intelligence agrees, that their territory is being used as a conduit for men and weapons into El Salvador by insurgents with Cuban support," said Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Franklin Kramer.
