Peru’s Dirty War Victims

In this Oct. 28, 2014 photo, Elvira Huaman sits alone on the dirt floor of her family’s home, staring at the coffin of her father Felix Huaman and uncle Narciszo Cisuche, in Huallhua in Peru’s Ayahuanco region. Felix and Narciszo were killed 24 years ago while defending their town so villagers could escape from Shining Path militants. Their throats had been slit and their skulls crushed. However their remains were exhumed only last year and recently handed over to relatives. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
