ACAPULCO — Four people were killed and three wounded when left-wing guerrillas ambushed Mexican troops in a mountainous area of the southern state of Guerrero, the government said Sunday.

A Defense Ministry statement said the clash took place Saturday afternoon when rebels from the Popular Revolutionary Army attacked troops near the town of Tepozonalco.

The statement said two army sergeants and two guerrillas carrying AK-47 assault rifles died in the clash, which occurred about 62 miles east of the state capital, Chilpancingo.

Three army doctors were also injured in the ambush.
