El Salvador guerrilla chief reportedly a suicide victim

El Salvador's most radical guerrilla chief reportedly committed suicide - and President Alvaro Magana called it a major blow to the rebels. Nicaragua announced that Salvador Cayetano Carpio - legendary leader of the Popular Liberation Forces - took his own life upon learning that some of his own colleagues had assassinated his second-in-command, Melida Anaya Montes. There was speculation, however, that Mr. Cayetano Carpio was killed by rebels struggling for supremacy of the insurgent movement.
