39 Rescued from Shinning Path Camp in Peru


The communist group in Peru, which killed thousands at the height of its influence in Peru, was just dealt a major blow by Peruvian authorities. A 120 soldier Peruvian Army unit conducted a raid on the “production camp” and rescued 36 captive men, women and children.

26 of the rescued were children being held for indoctrination into the communist rebel group.
