Ataque de Sendero en Perú.

Soldier Dies in Guerrilla Attack in Peru.

LIMA – A soldier was killed and five other people wounded – including a civilian adolescent – when suspected Shining Path guerrillas attacked a military outpost in the southern region of Ayacucho, the Peruvian Attorney General’s Office said Monday.

The incident took place in the San Francisco-Limontayocc area of the territory Peru’s military has designated as the Valley of the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro Rivers, or VRAEM, where remnants of Shining Path continue to operate more than two decades after the insurgency was defeated at the national level.

Much of the VRAEM region consists of dense jungle and this latest incident involved a military post coming under fire from attackers hidden in the brush.

The fatality, identified only as a non-commissioned officer, died at the hospital in San Francisco.

Four other soldiers and a 15-year-old civilian male were wounded, RPP radio said.

The Maoist-inspired Shining Path insurgency erupted in 1980 and killed tens of thousands of people before its core elements were smashed in 1992.

Peruvian authorities accuse the surviving Shining Path units of having joined forces with drug cartels.
