Archbishop Arturo Rivera y Damas, the leader of El Salvador’s Roman Catholic Church, said that at least four human rights workers, detained for alleged links to the left, were tortured into signing confessions. Rivera y Damas criticized the treatment of the detainees, members of the non-governmental Human Rights Commission and the Committee of Mothers of the Disappeared and Political Prisoners. The four were accused by police of being rebels who had infiltrated the two organizations.
