The body count keeps growing, looking back on the violence

Peru Report Says 69,000 Died in 20 Years of Rebel War: "The report's nine volumes, thousands of pages long, provide details about the massacres in Indian villages, the brutal crackdown on prison uprisings and the operation of a secret paramilitary unit called the Colina group. Commission workers said it also explained in detail the effects of the conflict on the Indians, an isolated people, victims of racism and indifference." NY Times And to think, we're just scratching the surface. If you do not want to register (free) with the Times, you can see the same article at Yahoo.
