Masked Indian rebels sat down with government mediators in a 16th-century cathedral to begin formal talks on ending an uprising for economic and political reforms, AP reports from San Cristobal de las Casas. Rebel negotiators spent the night in the cathedral after arriving from jungle hideouts on Sunday. They talked with the government's peace envoy, Manuel Camacho Solis, and Bishop Samuel Ruiz.
