LAST SALVADORAN ELITE BATTALION DISSOLVED

The battalions had been accused of repeated human rights violations during the decade-long war.

El Salvador's peace process has been troubled by allegations that the rebels have refused to turn over all weapons and that the government has refused to dismiss all identified rights violators in the armed forces.
