SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A U.S. Border Patrol agent was recovering Thursday from injuries he suffered when someone hurled a rock at him over the international border fence in the Tecate area, authorities reported.

The agent was taken to a hospital for treatment of head and arm trauma. The extent of the injuries and the victim's name were not released.
