Panama students seize El Salvador Embassy

Militant Panamanian students seized the Embassy of El Salvador here Thursday, taking six hostages, a spokesman for the group said. The spokesman said members of the Students Revolutionary Front (FER) occupied the embassy "as a show of solidarity for the oppressed Salvadorean people." He said their original plan was to leave the embassy after one hour. "But now we don't know what we will do because police have the building surrounded," the spokesman told Reuters by telephone.
