MSNBC / AP Peru truth commission exhumes remains of Shining Path massacre: "After guerrillas killed a handful of peasants in 1982, community self-defense groups known as ''ronderos'' began to fight back armed only with clubs and slingshots. In March 1983, a rondero patrol rounded up 10 guerrillas, marched them into Lucanamarca's central plaza and killed them, burning one man alive. Shining Path guerrillas retaliated the following month, shooting or hacking villagers to death with machetes. Guzman took credit for the massacre in 1988."
