Key refinery attacked by Salvadorean rebels

Leftist rebels attacked El Salvador's most important sugar refinery with bazookas and mortars, killing two soldiers and wounding 15 others, local officials said. There was no immediate estimate of damage to the facility.

Officials said the rebels took advantage of the nationwide blackout Sunday night caused by a guerrilla attack on the San Rafael Cedros electrical substation in northern El Salvador.
