Paramilitaries Demand Pay for War Efforts

 SAN SALVADOR -- Hundreds of ex-paramilitaries barricaded for a second day a
 government complex Tuesday, demanding state compensation for their help in
 ending the country's 12-year civil war in 1992.

 The ex-paramilitaries were among 20,000 men who helped fight leftist rebels
 during the civil war. They were not included as beneficiaries in the peace accords
 that ended the conflict.

 The protest was to renew demands for compensation of $1,724 each.
