A member of Paraguay's special forces stands next to a poster offering 3,500 million guarani ($80,553) for useful information that leads to the capture of suspected rebels, at a police station in Horqueta city, Concepcion November 1, 2011. Security forces are searching for members of the small armed left-wing group, the Paraguayan People's Army, or EPP by its Spanish initials. The EPP mixes violence with a revolutionary rhetoric reminiscent of the guerrilla movements that sprang up across Latin America in the 1960s and 1970s, and has gained prominence in recent years due to several high-profile kidnappings and daring raids. Paraguay's President Fernando Lugo is under mounting pressure to close the net on the gunmen and has sent troops and more than 1,000 extra police to the group's heartland in the ranching provinces of Concepcion and San Pedro for a 60-day crackdown due to end next month.
