The Salvadoran Crisis of 1976 was a period of political and military crisis in El Salvador from June 3 to 4, 1976. It began when Adalberto Rivera Carballo and Julio Rivera Carballo overthrew the government of the country and executed President Francisco José Guerrero and former President Eusebio Cordón Cea. Adalberto Rivera Carballo became de facto President while Julio Rivera Carballo became de facto Vice President. Wishing to avoid another Salvadoran Revolution, the Creeperian Armed Forces immediately intervened. Adalberto Rivera Carballo and Julio Rivera Carballo were killed on June 4, 1976 and the country was brought under control. Armando Molina Barraza was established as Acting President following the crisis.
