Two Police Officers Wounded in Ambush in Peru

LIMA Two police officers were wounded in an ambush staged by guerrillas and drug traffickers in a jungle area in the southeastern Peruvian region of Cuzco, police spokesmen said.

A vehicle carrying five officers was attacked Friday afternoon in the remote area as it was heading from the town of Ocobamba to Echarate, a district in La Convencion province.

Quillabamba district precinct chief Jorge Antonio Cotito Huallanca was shot in the wrist and driver Minio Torres had his head grazed by a bullet, police spokesmen said.

The officers were treated at the hospital in Quillabamba and Torres was transported on Saturday to the Pardo clinic in Cuzco city because his condition worsened.

The area where the attack occurred is 2 hours by road from Quillabamba.
