Perú: Group Who Kidnapped 36 Gas Workers Disavow Sendero Connection

For the benefit of our readers who follow events in Perú closely, please see the below link to an excellent Latin American Herald Tribune (LAHT) piece entitled, "Perú Guerrillas Who Held Workers Deny Shining Path Link."

COMMENT: Most noteworthy in the LAHT article is the fact that the leadership of the group responsible for the mass-hostage-taking, the Militarized Communist Party of Perú, said that no ransom was received before the release of their captives. The group did acknowledge; however, that they shot down a Peruvian police helicopter, which killed the co-pilot.
