MANILA — A caller today claimed a Communist guerrilla group had killed three Americans and a Filipino near Clark Air Base, and said seven more Americans would be slain to avenge a recent U.S. military shipment.

The four shot and killed Wednesday included two U.S. airmen, a retired U.S. airman and a Filipino businessman. (Story on Page 4.) Gunmen ambushed the car of an Air Force captain in one of the attacks, but he escaped injury.

The anonymous caller told a Western news agency he was from the Alex Boncayao Brigade, a Manila-based urban guerrilla group.

He said one American would be slain for each of the 10 armored personnel carriers delivered to the Philippine government last week by the United States.
