Shining Path returns to carve bloody inroads into bitterly divided Peru: Left wing extremism

 The bodies were strewn beside a riverbank outside a bar frequented by prostitutes and drug dealers in an impoverished village in central Peru. Sixteen lay dead, including two children. Some showed signs of burns. Locals said three men carrying automatic weapons had pulled up on motorcycles and carried out the massacre. They had given no warning.

As they left, they scattered dozens of pamphlets on the ground, placing some on the corpses. The Peruvian army said the notes called on people to boycott last week’s presidential election and had been signed by a group calling itself the “Militarised Communist Party of Peru”.
