Authorities turned over to families 26 coffins containing the remains of people from various towns whose body parts were excavated from 250 graves since November. According to Peruvian authorities, the victims, including women, children and village authorities, were killed by both members of the Shining Path militant group and the army between 1980 and 2000, and are among tens of thousands of Peruvians who died during the Maoist-inspired insurgency.
