Peru’s Dirty War Victims

In this Oct. 28, 2014 photo, tears run down Udilia Ciguria Curo’s face as she slowly inspect the remains of her brother Hector Curo Palomino during a one day candle lit wake inside the their home, as is local custom, in Huallhua, in Peru’s Ayahuanco region. Curo was in his 20s when he was killed defending the town with two other members of the village’s citizen self-defense force so villagers could escape from Shining Path militants on June 14, 1990. His remains were only recently exhumed and handed over to relatives, allowing them to bury him properly 24 years later. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
