Peru’s Military Says 3 Soldiers Wounded in Clash

LIMA – Peru’s armed forces lowered the casualty figure from a clash with “terrorist criminals” in the southeastern region of Cuzco, saying three soldiers were wounded instead of four.

The armed forces Joint Command said the clash took place Wednesday morning near an army garrison in the hamlet of Yuveni, La Convencion province.

Sgts. Luis Aranda, Jackes Alvarado and Alfredo Jara were wounded and received first aid in Kiteni, about an hour away by road, before being taken to a mobile surgical unit in the town of Pichari.

Hours earlier, the top official in La Convencion province, Fedia Castro, relayed reports from local residents in Yuveni indicating that four soldiers were wounded in the fighting, telling RPP radio that the clash took place about 200 meters (656 feet) from the center of that hamlet.

Wednesday’s attack occurred in an area where remnants of the Shining Path rebel group are active.

The insurgents are now allied with drug traffickers, Peruvian authorities say. EFE
