    In this June 16, 2013 photo, a boy pushes another in a makeshift swing in Chaca, Peru, a remote region of Ayacucho state that endured some of the worst atrocities of Peru’s 1980-2000 conflict. Chaca is among thousands of communities still waiting for reparations money promised by the state eight years ago. It lacks running water and telephone service, medical attention is precarious and, during the four-month rainy season, it’s inaccessible by vehicle as the dirt road link becomes mud. (AP...

    In this June 15, 2013 photo, Junior Edgar, 4, sleeps in the corner of an evangelical church in Chaca, Peru, as his mother participates in the evening service, after attending a mass burial. Peru has failed to address the unhealed wounds of thousands of families, most of them poor, Quechua-speaking peasants, traumatized by the country’s 1980-2000 conflict. Ten years after a Truth and Reconciliation Commission of respected academics issued a report on the conflict, few of its recommendations...

Yet fewer than 3,000 bodies have been exhumed because the country has lagged in healing the wounds of...

    In this June 14, 2013 photo, Rosa Sandoval chews on coca leaves as she keeps vigil next to the coffins that contain the remains of the victims of the 1988 Chaca massacre, in San Miguel, Peru. Judges have not accepted that “in Peru there were systematic violations of human rights. Instead, in recent years they argue that there were only ‘excesses’ - and with those arguments they have absolved those who gave the orders,” says Jo-Marie Burt, a George Mason University political scientist who...
