RIVAL GANGS DECLARE TRUCE, MEET WITH MAYOR PLAINFIELD

Authorities say the truce — reached without intervention from police or city officials and sealed with a meeting at an IHOP in North Plainfield on Monday — is unprecedented in its public nature.
Reporters met with the two sides at the same restaurant today, just before the unannounced meeting with the mayor. . . .
