    Peru U-turn on war museum funds

    bloggerEndcrd1_0002 Peruvian President Alan Garcia has accepted a $2m (£1.4m) German donation for a museum to victims of Peru's civil conflict - weeks after rejecting it.

    The about-face came at the request of Peru's most famous author, Mario Vargas Llosa, after he held a private meeting with Mr Garcia.

    The president has now asked Mr Vargas Llosa to head up the project.

    Some 70,000 people died during the conflict between state forces and Maoist Shining Path guerrillas.
