Peru Coca Growers Briefly Hold Tourists

Coca growers protesting government plans to eradicate their cocaine-producing crop briefly held a group of European tourists visiting Inca ruins in the Andean city of Cuzco Tuesday, police said. The tourists, identified by Radioprogramas radio as 17 French and two Germans, were released after police stormed the Koricancha site, an Inca sun temple. Some 70 protesters were detained, police said. The travelers were not harmed, according to Radioprogramas, Peru’s most respected radio news station. < href="http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=589&ncid=734&e=4&u=/ap/20040928/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/peru_coca_protest">Full Story
