Nicaraguan rebel leader Adolfo Chamorro was arrested when he arrived in San Jose, Costa Rica, from Miami, and ordered to return to the United States. Chamorro is a leader of the Revolutionary Democratic Alliance, one of several U.S.-backed groups of rebels known as contras. Chamorro was expelled from Costa Rica last year for inflammatory statements against Nicaragua’s leftist Sandinista government and barred from returning. His group operates in southern Nicaragua from makeshift bases along the Costa Rican border. A spokesman said Chamorro entered the country to “settle immigration problems.”
