MANILA, Philippines — Philippine troops killed a communist guerrilla and captured a rebel encampment in offensives launched despite a planned resumption of talks aimed at ending the 41-year Maoist rebellion, officials said Sunday.

Philippine officials and the rebels announced Friday they will hold preliminary talks in January to discuss a planned resumption of peace talks in late February in Norway, which has brokered past negotiations. The talks stalled in 2004.

The two sides also agreed to observe a cease-fire from Dec. 16 to Jan. 3 during the Christmas and New Year holiday.
