The raiders struck before dawn, 10 well-armed agents of the Peruvian intelligence service descending on a house here. The target was not a terrorists' hide-out. It was a secret "intelligence house" operated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration with approval of the Peruvian government. The military judge leading the raid threatened to arrest the U.S.-trained Peruvian police officers inside who were using high-tech equipment to intercept communications by drug traffickers.

LIMA, Peru -- Peruvian President Ollanta Humala on Friday said he had turned down the plea for a pardon by former leader Alberto Fujimori, who is serving a 25-year prison term for corruption and crimes against humanity. In an midday announcement at the presidential palace in Lima, Humala said he was acting on the recommendation of the justice minister not to exercise his power of granting pardon to Fujimori, who was elected president three times. Fujimori's family appealed to Humala to grant a pardon on humanitarian grounds because the former president suffers from cancer of the tongue for which he has received five surgeries.
