Breaking the chain of trafficking

Peru is a source, transit and destination country for men, women and children subjected to trafficking in persons, specifically forced labor and forced prostitution. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, there were reports that the terrorist group Sendero Luminoso, or Shining Path, recruited children as soldiers and drug mules. In the following excerpt, taken from the book Aguchita: Mercy and Justice, we read how it was a child soldier who shot and murdered Aguchita, a girl who was perhaps herself a victim of trafficking and forced into combat.
