It started at dawn. Truckload after truckload of the feared state police and Mexican army roared onto a ridge above this rural village. To Virginia Diaz, a mother of 11, there was only one thing to do: Flee and hope for the best. It wasn't enough. She and her husband were reunited Thursday with 10 of their children separated in the scramble. But their son Adolfo, 20, still had not turned up.

An ambush by suspected Marxist rebels that killed three soldiers in Mexico's Guerrero state probably was revenge for an army attack earlier this month, and more bloodshed can be expected, analysts said Tuesday. The clash, which showed a second guerrilla war is heating up on Mexico's impoverished southern flank, left three soldiers dead and three injured when attackers fired on a military patrol Monday.

The police and soldiers were gone from this Indian village on Thursday, and dozens of men in Zapatista rebel uniforms patrolled the town's square, some with assault rifles. The evidence of the clash between the army and rebels Wednesday was everywhere--smashed desks in the farm hall, the ransacked interior of the town store, an ample smearing of blood on the concrete floor of the health clinic. No women or children could be seen here Thursday.
