Key figures

A few articles to give you the back story on some of the people making the headlines in Peru:

Alan Garcia, the President
Ollanta Humala, the hardcore nationalist who almost won the last elections
Alberto Fujimori, President from 1990, dictator from 1992, exile from 2000 and prisoner in Chile since 2005; a visionary in the war on terror or a violent despot?
Vladimiro Montesinos, the almost comically evil spy chief who ran Fujimori’s presidency through bribery and intimidation.
