    Background: FOLLOWING A BLOODLESS COUP AT THE WEEKEND (MARCH 30 AND 31) THE NEW GUATEMALA LEADER, COLONEL ENRIQUE PERALTA AZURDIA, PROMISED A FIGHT TO THE DEATH AGAINST COMMUNISM.

    SOME SHOOTING HAD BEEN REPORTED DURING THE COUP, AND CARS, HOMES AND STORE WERE DAMAGED. IT WAS ALL OVER IN A FEW HOURS AFTER A SATURDAY NIGHT MOVE BY TANKS AGAINST THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE.

    PRESIDENT MANUEL YDIGORAS, FORCED TO LEAVE FOR NICARAGUA, SAID HE WOULD BE JOINING THE ANTI-CASTRO GROUP OF CUBAN REFUGEE FIGHTERS "ALPHA 66".

    AFTER THE COUP, THE NOVEMBER PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS WERE SUSPENDED. LEFT-LEANING FORMER PRESIDENT JUAN JOSE AREVALO, WHO HAD MADE A CLANDESTINE RETURN TO THE COUNTRY, HAD BEEN EXPECTED TO WIN THE POLL.
