Mattia Cabitza on Peruvians remembering their dead - Nov.13/11

In Peru, Mattia Cabitza goes to a funeral, where mourners honour a group of men killed by death squads 19 years ago. 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 seventy-thousand people simply...disappeared. But as mass graves emerge, the dead are finally embraced.
