Contra Raids on Clinics Reported

United Press International

U.S.-backed contra rebels are attacking Nicaraguan health clinics in direct violation of the Geneva Conventions and as part of an organized campaign of terror, a group of American doctors and nurses charged today.

The group, organized by the National Central American Health Rights Network, said they independently confirmed the attacks in three unsupervised trips to Nicaragua since 1984, visiting the sites of six rural clinics allegedly bombed or burned by the Nicaraguan Democratic Front, the U.S.-backed force seeking to overthrow the Sandinista government.
