Peruvian Photographer Kidnapped!

AFP photographer Jaime Razuri has been kidnapped "by unidentified gunmen" in the Palestinian Territories! I'll have more details as soon as I get them, but for now, here are some pictures of a demonstration calling for his immediate release.

(This shows you how behind I am -- The kidnapping occurred 4 days ago, according to wire reports. Still working on catching up, so bear with me, folks!)

From what I can tell, this is Jaime's blog. I don't have any translations handy, but I'll be scouring it shortly. Update: The blog is dedicated to Jaime's liberation, it is not his. Reading comprehension before coffee = Bad. Reading comprehension en espanol before coffee = Worse.

According to the Palestinian government, which is controlled mostly by Fatah, Mr. Razuri was kidnapped by Hamas. Considering the source, I'll take that with a grain of salt.
