Salvadoran finds mother 32 years after war atrocity

Salvadoran finds mother 32 years after war atrocity
Published on 24 October 2012 - 9:17pm

A woman from El Salvador was reunited with her mother Wednesday, 32 years after the pair separated when they fled a massacre by army troops, officials said.

Rosa Miriam, 41, met her mother Maria Sibrian and her siblings in the town of Santa Emilia, southwest of San Salvador, the government office in charge of connecting people separated during the country's 1979-1992 civil war said.

"Given the psychosocial situation," government social workers have "begun a process of individual attention with mother, brothers and Rosa Miriam, to attempt to overcome the trauma that comes from suffering an event of this nature," the office known as CNB said in a statement.

In May 1980, Rosa Miriam was living in a rural village on the banks of the Sumpul River, in the Chalatenango department on the border with Honduras, with her parents and four siblings. She was nine years old.
