2 Sandinistas' resignations are accepted in Nicaragua

By

The Nicaraguan government has accepted the resignations of two leading Sandinistas who left the country last week saying they would flight alongside leftist guerrillas elsewhere in Central America. It said the two men, Deputy Defense Minister Eden Pastora and Deputy Interior Minister Jose Valdivia, had also been relieved of their ranks as Army commanders.

The two Sandinistas and about 20 companions were last reported in Panama, but their final destination was believed to be El Salvador or Guatemala, where guerrillas are trying to topple Army-backed governments.
