In pictures: Biggest exhumation underway from Peru conflict
Tuesday 03 December 2013
The exhumation in the district of Chungui in Peru brings back traumatic memories for survivors of the internal conflict of 1980-2000, in which soldiers and their paramilitary allies dismembered and killed women and children left behind by fleeing Shining Path rebels.
Health care, schools, police and other institutions barely exist in the district, whose hills are dominated by Shining Path rebels and drug traffickers. Authorities in distant Lima had been slow to dispatch teams to dig up the dead from the conflict, which claimed an estimated 70,000 lives.
