The leader of Peru's Shining Path rebel group has been captured, government officials have announced.
The guerrilla leader known as "Comrade Artemio" was found badly wounded after a clash with troops in a remote jungle region, the defence minister said.
The Maoist Shining Path movement posed a major challenge to the Peruvian state in the 1980s and 90s.
But it is now reduced to a small remnant that is heavily involved in the cocaine trade.
