Rebels hold hundreds of hostages in Peru
LIMA, Peru (AP) — Armed guerrillas who sneaked into a glittering diplomatic reception by carrying bottles of champagne and posing as waiters held at least 200 people hostage today. One rebel threatened to start killing them unless the government freed their jailed comrades.
The rebels from the Tupac Amaru movement attacked the Japanese ambassador’s house as the party began Tuesday night, setting off
explosions and exchanging gunfire with police for almost an hour. Two hostages and a rebel were reported wounded.
In the hours after the assault, the rebels released about 170 hostages, most of them women. Reports differed on how many were left, but at least 200 remained inside the compound, which covers an entire block and sits behind a 15-foot-high concrete wall topped by a 10-foot electrical fence.

should the actual collection not meet this year’s goal, he said.
Sansing thanked the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung,
KGNB/KNBT radio and TCI Cablevision for helping to promote the drive, as well as all the donors. He also thanked the 23-member board and executive director Joe Rogers for their contributions during the drive.
Sansing said the United Way’s allocations committee would distribute the money after reviewing a recipient’s financial records, mission statement and projected number of people the request will benefit.

Among the hostages were the ambassadors of Japan, Canada, Brazil, Bolivia, Cuba, South Korea, Germany, Austria and Venezuela.
In Tuesday’s edition of the Herald-Zeitung, it was reported that the city received $80,000 as a grant from the Alamo Area Council of Governments for the N*Bus system. That is actually an estimate of the overall cost for the one-year trial project. The Community Council of South Central Texas is paying for the bus system out of its own budget, which totaled about $37,178 for the first six months.
Also, the city has an option of applying for $350,000 in a matching grant for the First two years, if it wants to proceed with the N*Bus system.
