The four leaders of the Ashaninka people, a group from a remote area along the border between Brazil and Peru, “were murdered by presumed illegal loggers for defending their land,” said Peru’s main indigenous organization, AIDESEP.

Locals told police that the men — Edwin Chota Valera, Leoncio Quincima Melendez, Jorge Rios Perez and Francisco Pinedo — were killed in front of their communities on September 1.
