Requiem after 19 years
A sombre funeral erupts in heartfelt
applause, when mourners came to honor a group of men killed by death squads in 1992.
It was a time when guerillas were clashing with the government, and civilians were targetted by both sides.
The country's Truth And Reconciliation Commission estimates 70,000 people simply...disappeared. As mass graves emerge, the dead are finally embraced, as we hear from Mattia Cabitza, from Santa, Peru.
