Civil War in El Salvador
Civil war broke out in El Salvador. A military coup unseated President Carlos Humberto Romero. The goal of the military was to try to stem the increasing violence between right- and left-wingers. The clashes continued and in December 1980 three American nuns were killed. This incident caused American President Carter to suspend all aid to El Salvador.
