ABSTRACT
Reveals that anthropologists authorized by the government have found the remains of at least 38 bodies, most of them children, in El Mozote, in northeastern El Salvador. One survivor claims that 11 years ago an American-trained batallion of Salvadoran government troops rampaged through El Mozote and surrounding hamlets over four days, killing nearly 800 civilians. The troops killed men, then women and finally children to ensure that there would be no witnesses.
