August 07, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Four Mexican soldiers crossed the border and held a U.S. Border Patrol agent at gunpoint before realizing where they were and returning to Mexico, authorities said.

The confrontation occurred early Sunday on the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation, about 85 miles southwest of Tucson, in an area fenced only with barbed wire, said Dove Crawford, a spokeswoman for the Border Patrol.
