Peru elections: 'dangerous farce'? | World War 4 Report


Peru elections: 'dangerous farce'? | World War 4 Report - Of course the genuinely brutal Shining Path insurgency was the context for Alberto Fujimori's abuses, and his defeat of the guerillas is doubtless a factor in the current support for his daughter.

Eight soldiers and two civilians were killed April 9 when guerillas ambushed an army patrol accompanying election workers at the pueblo of Hatunccasa, Santo Domingo de Acobamba district, Huancayo province, Junín region. This lies within the pocket of jungle known as the Apurímac-Ene Valley (VRAE), one of the last areas of the country where remnant Shining Path forces still operate. Another five were wounded in the attack. (BBC News, Peru21, April 11; La República, April 10; Ojo, April 9)
