Peru: Photo of the day

Here's a picture of Abimael Guzmán on 13 September 1992, the day after his capure, alongside partner Elena Iparraguirre and Alférez Olano of the GEIN. The standard picture of the arrest of Guzmán is the much better known one of him, caged, in the stripy suit in which he was paraded to the press. This looks more like a souvenir snapshot and features a comparatively smart "Presidente Gonzalo" and a bizarrely cheerful-looking second-in-command. Caretas describes Iparraguirre as "euphoric", while Guzmán looks stoical and both are doing their obligatory, fisted salute for the camera.
