Nicaraguan agrarian reform officials said land titles were given to more than 1,000 peasant families to coincide with this week's observances of the 1979 Sandinista revolution. The officials said 25,000 more peasant families will receive land titles by the end of the year. Jaime Wheelock, minister of agriculture, said 46% of peasant families have received some form of land title since the revolution.
