Financial Times - War still haunts Ayacucho: "The scars left by the conflict run deep in Ayacucho. Its legacy can be seen in high unemployment and alcoholism. Prostitution, which prospered when garrisons were stationed in the town, has produced cases of Aids and other sexually transmitted diseases in recent years. The suicide rate is well above average. The number of single mothers, unusual in such a conservative community, is less surprising given how many young men were killed." Another story that I missed in February. Good reporting.
