Peru's Shining Path members face new charges

Maoist movement's leaders face bid to keep them in prison as they near the end of life sentences for bomb attack.

    Leaders of Peru's Shining Path rebel group have spent decades in jail for their part in a bombing which killed dozens of people.

    But as the Maoists near the end of their sentences, a judge is deciding whether a trial should be held over new terrorism charges.

    Critics say the new accusations are designed to keep them locked up until they die.
