CNN / AP Leftist guerrillas raid small town in Peruvian Andes: "About 50 members of the Mao-inspired guerrilla group descended Thursday on the hamlet of Calicanto in Ayacucho province, some 210 miles (345 kilometers) southeast of Lima, police said. Townspeople said the rebels, who were carrying automatic shotguns and wearing hoods, criticized the government's economic policies and urged the inhabitants to join their ranks." I tried to look up Calicanto in the Atlas of Peru and could not find it, nor another town mentioned, Tutumbaro. There are lots of towns in Ayacucho that are not on the map. The story also incorrectly says that these hamlets are located in the province of Ayacucho. There is no province by that name.
