2 describe massacre at Fujimori trial





Hooded men with machine guns burst into a Lima tenement and killed 15 people at a barbecue, including an 8-year-old boy, two survivors of the 1991 attack testified Friday at the murder trial of former President Alberto Fujimori.

Fujimori, 69, is facing up to 30 years in prison for allegedly ordering the massacre and the 1992 killings of nine university students and a professor. He is also charged with ordering the kidnappings of a prominent journalist and a businessman.

He has denied having any knowledge of death squad activities or ordering a dirty war against the Marxist Shining Path rebels in the early 1990s.
