Peru recovers mass grave bodies 1984





Forensic investigators in Peru say they have recovered the remains of at least 25 people from a mass grave, which could be the site of a 1984 massacre.
A group for the victims' families says it believes the grave contains more than 125 people killed by the military.
The search for mass graves follows a government-approved truth commission into atrocities committed by both the military and Shining Path rebels.
The insurgency of the Maoist guerrillas lasted two decades, ending in 2000.
