Peru: Shining Path guerrilla group attack death toll raised to 7


A guerilla attack on Peruvian soldiers on the eve of the country’s presidential elections killed seven people, authorities said Sunday, raising the previous day’s toll.

The head of the state prosecution service, Pablo Sanchez, said in a televised address that seven people were killed and five wounded in Saturday’s attack in the jungles of central Peru.

The military earlier gave a toll of four killed - three soldiers and a civilian. They said guerrillas attacked a military convoy that was transporting electoral material and forces to guard voting stations in the central Junin region.

Authorities blamed remnants of the Shining Path communist guerilla group, which was largely crushed in the 1990s but still has members hiding in the jungle.
