Rebels in Nicaragua blew up a highway bridge and ambushed a Sandinista army convoy, killing or wounding 80 soldiers, a spokesman for the contras said. Frank Arana, a spokesman for the Honduras-based Nicaraguan Democratic Force, reported one of the contras wounded in the attack, which he said occurred Saturday about 90 miles north of Managua, the capital. There was no independent confirmation of the encounter.
