CAPTION ONLY: FIGHTING BREAKS OUT IN NICARAGUA

SHARE CAPTION ONLY: FIGHTING BREAKS OUT IN NICARAGUA

Civilians carry a wounded soldier to medical help during fierce fighting between government troops and about 150 rebels after the rebels attacked the city of Esteli in northern Nicaragua Wednesday. It was the worst outbreak of fighting since Nicaragua's civil war ended in 1990. Rebels said the attack was prompted by President Violeta Chamorro's failure to provide land and money for resettlement to former Contras and discharged soldiers.
