LIMA, Peru — Leftist rebels set off bombs at 17 sites in Lima, including luxury hotels, banks, stores and a restaurant, police and news reports said today. Newspapers said two waiters were injured in one attack.

The bombings began Sunday night when power towers outside Lima were dynamited and the capital was hit by a 90-minute blackout. Police said rebels planted bombs in rooms of the Sheraton, Bolivar and Crillon hotels, causing small fires but injuring no one.
