Honduran troops aiding El Salvador, rebels say

Leftist rebels said two Honduran Army battalions are joining government troops in their big offensive against the guerrillas in northeastern El Salvador , bringing another country into the war.

They claimed the combined forces add up to 8,000 troops. Earlier the rebels said US-supplied ''Huey'' Honduran Army helicopters were ferrying troops to Guacamaya, several miles inside El Salvador. No military spokesmen were available for comment.
