Guerrillas planned to attack the U.S. Embassy in Lima but were thwarted by police, who arrested two armed men while the others fled, a Peruvian government official reportedly told a newspaper in the capital. A U.S. Embassy spokesman said the report is being investigated. Deputy Interior Minister Agustin Mantilla was quoted by El Comercio as saying that two guerrillas from an unidentified group were detained outside the heavily guarded downtown embassy about noon Saturday. There were no further details.
