Peru's Shining Path rebel group has been defeated, according to an interview with one of its leaders.
Once one of the most powerful groups in Latin America, the Shining Path murdered tens of thousands in its quest to found a communist state.
In all, an estimated 70,000 people were killed in the rebellion and the government's resulting anti-insurgency campaign.
The group was seriously diminished after the capture of Abimael Guzman, its leader. Thousands of fighters surrendered.
