Salvadoran guerrilla deported by Honduras

Honduran President Roberto Suazo Cordova promised safe conduct out of Honduras to the left-wing commandos who stormed the chamber of commerce here, taking over 100 hostages, provided they freed the hostages. Negotiations for the hostages' release continued for the fourth day Tuesday.

Monday night Salvadoran military authorities announced Honduras had last month handed over one of the most prominent leaders of the left-wing guerrilla groups fighting the El Salvador government, military authorities said.

They said Alejandro Montenegro was being held in a Salvadoran jail after being deported and handed over to authorities here. There have been reports the guerrillas holding the Honduran hostages demanded the release of Mr. Montenegro, believing he was still in Honduras.
