    Background: The military in El Salvador have intensified their campaign to curb the activities of leftist guerrillas -- the latest in a series if clashes in the three years of civil war which have beset El Salvador. In the Apopa province, an ambush by anti-government insurgents on october 28 sparked a swift response from the army. The following day, troops were to be seen everywhere in the village of Chaletenango and the surrounding area, the scene of the ambush. Soldiers on foot mounted an intensive search of woodlands as helicopter gunships took to the air. Government troops have also recaptured the guerilla-held town of La Laguna near the Honduran border. They met heavy resistance from the guerrillas and extra troops have been called in to ensure the town and the villages along the border remain under government control.
