Sendero guerillas say they've changed their ways

Peru's poor peasants raring to hunt Shining Path: "The Shining Path, or Sendero Luminoso in Spanish, is slowly regrouping after lying dormant for much of the past decade since the capture of its leader. The government relaxed its guard after its success against the group and became preoccupied with other problems, giving rebels an opening. As the rebels regather, Peru's poor farmers are trying to make a comeback with their own call to arms. The trouble is, they don't have any." Reuters AlertNet Reporting from the field says tht Shining Path is trying to portray itself as different from what it was back in the 1980s -- no more hacking people to death, no more intolerance of non-PCP groups.
