El Salvador's ruling civilian-military junta extended the "state of siege" for another 30 days because of the country's spiraling political violence, officials said. The state of siege, first imposed March 5, lifts constitutional guarantees for free travel in and out of El Salvador, subjects mail to government inspection, and bans political advertisements.
