    Paraguay has deployed thousands of security forces to hunt down guerrillas feared to have formed a political insurgency.

    The Paraguayan People's Army (EPP) claim they are fighting for the poor. But rural farmers say they are turning the countryside into a "no-man's land".

    Al Jazeera's Craig Mauro went to the city of Concepcion and talked to man whose son was killed by the EPP.
