Peru: Ambassador resigns in Movadef fallout

The story of Movadef's activities in Argentina moves on. Peruvian media had also reported that the Peruvian ambassador in Argentina, Nicolás Lynch, had met with representatives of the pro-Sendero group back in January. Now Lynch has stepped down as a result of the scandal which has blown up; however, he denies sympathising with Movadef.

Coverage on this is still overwhelmingly Peruvian, but the first stories have appeared in Argentine media as well.
