"Infiltrators" were blamed for an alleged ambush by Achuar Indians that left one policeman dead during a violent labor dispute last month at Pluspetrol's oil field in Peru's northern jungle. But local clergyman Rev. Paul McAuley, an environmental activist, tells Peruvian Times that there's more to the story. Fifteen Achuar Indians jailed without charges are in a legal battle for release.
