A few quick hits:

Chile indicts ex-officers in Pinochet-era killings (AP)

El utero de marita points out, in ironic fashion, that the CNDDHH, far from ignoring the human rights of soldiers attacked by Shining Path, has taken up the case of the victims' families (Spanish).

Plus, the discovery that one of the dead soldiers from the ambush was 17 has led to unwelcome headlines abroad for the Peruvian armed forces. "A army of minors against Shining Path" accuses Spain's El Mundo. "The mothers of 16 adolescents claim that the army took their children by force" it continues.
