Peruvians bury mass grave victims


Dozens of civilian victims of a 1984 massacre in Peru have been buried, 25 years after they were murdered during a bitter Maoist insurgency.

The burials followed a two-day funeral procession for some 90 victims recovered from a mass grave last year.

The killing of more than 120 men, women and children in the highland village of Putis was the worst massacre in two decades of bitter conflict.

Dan Collyns reports.
