YUMA - The U.S. Border Patrol says it detained a Mexican army unit that had apparently accidentally crossed into the U.S. near Yuma early Friday.


The Mexican army Hummer and seven armed soldiers were found along the Colorado River less than a mile north of the border. Border Patrol spokesman Michael Bernacke says the Hummer was apparently disabled. Agents approached the vehicle, questioned the soldiers and took them into custody without incident.


Bernacke says the soldiers claimed they had become disoriented while on a patrol and accidentally crossed into the U.S. The border is poorly marked in the area.


The soldiers were taken to the border crossing in nearby San Luis, processed for return to Mexico and handed over to their commanding officer.
