CaptionA lone guerrilla enters the village at dusk. In January, the government of El Salvador and the FMLN guerrilla movement signed a treaty to end the 12-year civil war which killed 70,000 and caused one million - a fifth of the total population - to flee the country. It was agreed that the FMLN would become a political party. Shortly before the signing of the peace treaty the army moved into Chalatenango, traditionally an FMLN-controlled area. The rebels are now free to return to their homes and the FMLN is being reformed in preparation for the 1994 general election.
