CNN Peru compensates relatives for 1991 massacre: "Peru has agreed to pay $3.3 million in compensation to four survivors and the relatives of 15 people murdered by a state-sponsored death squad in a massacre 10 years ago. President Alejandro Toledo and Justice Minister Fernando Olivera handed over checks Wednesday for $2,000 to the survivors and family members, promising to give the remainder of $175,000 to each by next year." This is the first time in Peru's history that anything like this has happened. And at $177,000 per person, it's not just a symbolic gesture.
