In Peru, Keiko Fujimori, the leader of the opposition and daughter of former dictator President Alberto Fujimori, was arrested Wednesday over allegations of money laundering and accepting illegal campaign contributions. Last week, a Peruvian judge overturned a pardon of her father Alberto Fujimori, who is now expected to return to prison for crimes including kidnapping, bribery and ordering massacres by death squads in the 1990s during his presidential rule.
