Peruvian Rebels Raid Police Station

Peru’s Shining Path Rebels Raid Police Station in Remote Andean Indian Community: Shining Path rebels attacked a police station in Peru’s remote Andean highland, officials said Tuesday, the latest in an upsurge of violence by the formerly powerful group. There were no casualties Monday night in Uranmarca, 50 miles southeast of Ayacucho, because the police were tipped off by villagers of the impending raid and fled, but the attack highlighted the rebel resurgence. A week ago, guerrillas ambushed an army patrol northeast of Ayacucho, 200 miles southeast of the capital, Lima, killing one soldier. The same day, a soldier on another patrol in the area was wounded when he stepped on a land mine set by rebels. The rebels also held up 10 buses in the area last week, and they were blamed for kidnapping 71 people June 9, releasing them a day later unharmed. Full Story
