A rebel leader who surrendered to the Salvadoran army said that the governments of Cuba and Nicaragua give weapons and advice to guerrillas in El Salvador, according to a statement obtained by United Press International. The statement was made by Napoleon Romero, the highest-ranking guerrilla leader to surrender in the last two years, during a meeting with officials in San Salvador. Romero, who surrendered about a week ago, headed the rebels’ political-military front in San Salvador.
