LIMA, Peru: Family members of the 14 Tupac Amaru rebels killed in Tuesday's raid are protesting that they were not allowed to bury their dead. The Peruvian government said the rebels will be buried in various locations, in unmarked graves. Lawyers representing the families charge that the government is hiding the bodies to suppress evidence that some rebels were mutilated, while others were executed when they attempted to surrender. Graphic television footage of Peruvian president Fujimoriís visit to the embassy showed what appeared to be mutilated rebel bodies; one had neither head nor arms.
