SANTO DOMINGO, Domin-
ican Republic (AP) — A 24-hour
cease-fire between junta and
rebel forces was scheduled to
start at noon today to permit
removal of dead and wounded
from Santo Domingo’s battle-
torn northern suburbs.
The Red -Cross and the United
Nations negotiated the agree-
ment to suspend the five-day
battle which has caused a death
toll estimated at more than 100.
“I have every hope that this
24-hour cease-fire will be per-

dez Martinez, president of the
Dominican Red Cross, told a
But the junta president, Brig.
Gen. Antonio Imbert Barrera,
whose forces have cut deep into
rebel positions in the northern
part of the capital, vowed to
carry his attack into the main
insurgent stronghold in down-
town Santo Domingo. He hinted
this would happen next week.
Rebel spokesmen acknowl-
edged that their northern forces
were being encircled with their
backs to the Ozama River.
Imbert told a newsman; “It is
now too late for a permanent
cease-fire such as the United
Nations and the Organization of
American States have been
trying to arrange.”
“We have renewed our mili-
tary operations and they cannot
be stopped,” he declared.

notion that the word “guns” is

word with dirty connotations.”
