PERU'S EX PRESIDENT DEAD AFTER SHOOTING HIMSELF
LIMA, PERU | 17-18 APRIL 2019

Alan García, a former Peruvian president whose first term in the 1980s was marred by financial chaos and rebel violence, and who was recently targeted in Latin America's biggest corruption scandal, died on Wednesday at the age of 69.

García shot himself before being detained by police amid allegations he received illegal payments from Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht after Peruvians voted him back into the presidency for a second term in 2006.
