A Peruvian general, Rodolfo Robles, who has taken refuge in the US embassy, said nine students and a professor killed last July had been murdered by an intelligence unit operating with the approval and knowledge of army chief General Nicolas Hermoza, Reuter reports from Lima.

'The crime of La Cantuta (university) was committed by a special intelligence unit operating under the orders of Vladimiro Montesinos, virtual chief of the National Intelligence Service,' he said in a hand-written document. But the army said 'General Robles has made grave charges against (the) army commander and other officials without proof to back them up.'
