Christian Science Monitor Dormant terror groups awaken: "In a confidential report last December, the Interior Ministry warned that Shining Path was seeking to establish a presence in Lima, blaming members of the group for anti-American graffiti such as "Yanquis out of Afghanistan." The report also detailed the arrest of two Shining Path militants in possession of maps and drawings of the US embassy. Peruvian officials say Shining Path now has no more than 400 members, most of them hiding deep in the jungle.

That continued activityshows how elusive complete military victory is, say experts." This is a broader look at terrorism trends in the wake of September 11.
