    Background: President Miguel Ydigoras of Guatemala inspected Nov 17 damage to buildings by Government bombing in Puerto Barrios, last stronghold of anti-Government forces before their flight into Eastern Guatemala.

    The Government were offering 50 dollars for every rebel captured. In a message before flying back to Guatemala City President Ydigoras announced "the battle is over."
    Government announcements regularly claimed victory over the "Communist-inspired rebels" since the revolt began Nov 13.

    While Guatemala and Nicaragua appeared recovered from uprisings Nov 18, another revolutionary plot was reported in neighbouring El Salvador, but this too, according to the ruling military junta, was thwarted.
