News In Brief

Nicaraguan rebel ousted from anti-Sandinist group

Nicaraguan rebel leader Eden Pastora and his followers have been expelled from a guerrilla group opposed to Sandinista rule in Nicaragua, a guerrilla statement said Tuesday.

The statement from the ruling body of the Democratic Revolutionary Alliance (ARDE) said Mr. Pastora's Sandino Revolutionary Front wing of the alliance was being ejected for its stand.

Bitter internal quarrels erupted in ARDE ranks last month after US-sponsored attempts to unite ARDE with the bigger Nicaraguan Democratic Force (FDN), which attacks Nicaragua from bases in Honduras. Pastora opposed such a union.
