Unidentified assailants in a passing car hurled a bomb at the Lima home of Peruvian Labor Minister Joaquin Leduia and fired on his bodyguard in the 14th day of a nationwide strike by civil servants. Leduia was home at the time but no injuries were reported. The blast damaged Leduia's garage. About 400,000 civil servants are on strike to press demands for higher pay. The walkout has paralyzed government offices, including customs, the post office and the national election board.
