An Old Friend: Imagine my surprise to come across El Diario Internacional. This left-wing newspaper was hijacked by Sendero sympathizers in the late 1980s. The staff went underground after the Peruvian government cracked down on it in 1989. Then, it resurfaced in Belgium. I had not seen a website for the rag until now. In Spanish, you can see nine issues. In English, there are only two and 10 in French. I always thought that the Peruvian government should never have shut down El Diario. You learned so much about the militants' mental makeup.
