SHARE CAPTION ONLY: SPRUCING UP FOR PEACE IN NICARAGUA

Myra Chavarilla, an 18-year-old "recompa" applies some makeup before a disarmament ceremony in El Dorado, Nicaragua, on Saturday. Chavarilla and more than 200 other "recompas" and "recontras" turned in their weapons to the government for destruction. The "recompas," who are rearmed Sandinistas, and the "recontras," who are rearmed Contras, formed last year and have fought each other sporadically since then.
