Elena Iparraguirre, the lover of Abimael Guzman, the leader of Peru's Shining Path movement, is escorted in prison by security police in Lima. Two soldiers, one police officer and seven civilians have been killed in the past few days by supporters bent on revenge for the capture of their leader, authorities said. In the latest killing, a police officer was shot in the head by three guerrillas while he was on patrol in eastern Lima. The trial of the Shining Path leader on treason charges is expected to be over by the end of the month.
