Opposition leader Ricardo Arias Calderon, a former opposition candidate for vice president, and eight supporters were reportedly arrested Sunday by the Panamanian police.

The Civic Democratic Opposition Alliance said the nine members of the Christian Democratic Party were arrested as they toured the countryside campaigning for the ouster of Gen. Manuel A. Noriega, the country's military strongman.
