Xinhua Prisoner Hunger Strike in Peru Continues: "Some 750 inmates from different jails in Peru refused on Friday to end the hunger strike they started late Monday, calling for the suspension of their sentences, new trials and penitentiary benefits. The inmates on hunger strike are indicted or sentenced on terrorism charges, as Peruvian authorities call guerrillas anti-government activists." Looks like the hunger strike is spreading, though it's hard to know how many prisoners are participating.
