Nicaraguan junta leader says US plans an invasion Oct. 15

Nicaraguan junta coordinator Daniel Ortega Saavedra accused the United States of preparing an invasion of Nicaragua on Oct. 15, with help from Honduras and Costa Rica.

Speaking to the UN General Assembly here yesterday, he said a US-appointed Nicaraguan ''puppet'' leader is waiting in the wings, without identifying him.

He called on the leaders of the US to ''leave the road to war and join us in the search for peace,'' and to ''begin a new era in the relations between our countries.''

Next Monday the World Court will rule on whether it has jurisdiction over a Nicaraguan complaint against the US for allegedly ''killing, wounding, and kidnapping'' Nicaraguans.
