Existing tension between the two countries was inflamed by rioting during the second qualifying round for the 1970 Football World Cup. On July 14, 1969, the Salvadoran army launched an attack against Honduras. The Organization of American States negotiated a cease-fire which took effect on July 20, with the Salvadoran troops withdrawn in early August.
The two nations signed a peace treaty on October 30, 1980 to put the border dispute before the International Court of Justice.
