Peru Guerrillas Offer to Disarm, IDL-Reporteros Says

(Corrects to say insurgency started 31 years ago in first paragraph.)

Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Sendero Luminoso, the Marxist guerrilla group that began an armed insurgency against the Peruvian state 31 years ago, is ready to disarm and pursue its political aims democratically, IDL-Reporteros said.

The group is willing to call a truce and destroy its weapons publicly in exchange for an amnesty for its members, Jose Flores, Sendero Luminoso’s leader in Peru’s central jungle region of Huallaga, said in an interview with the Lima-based magazine.

Flores said his request for an amnesty was rejected by President Ollanta Humala and by previous governments, according to the magazine.
