    Hundreds of soldiers continue to search for 36 abducted gas workers in the jungles of Peru, and the mountainous jungle region they disappeared from has been declared a state of emergency.

    The government believes that the hostages were taken by fighters from the Shining Path rebel group, whose demands for weapons and money have been outright rejected.
