At Least 22 Indians Killed in Ecuador Jungle Clash

At least 22 Indians were killed in Ecuador’s Amazon jungle in a clash with a neighboring Indian community, officials said on Thursday. Tagaeri Indians living in the jungle, about 94 miles southeast of Quito, were killed on Tuesday by members of another Indian group, apparently in a revenge attack, after a member of their group was slain in an attempted raid on Tagaeri lands, an indigenous leader said. The Tagaeri live in isolation in a protected area where logging and oil activity is prohibited, and an indigenous group said the dispute dated back to tensions over pressure from loggers to be allowed into the area.
