Greenpeace seeks to exclude journalists from Peru case

Greenpeace said Tuesday it has given prosecutors the names of four people involved in a protest for renewable energy at the country’s famed Nazca Lines archaeological site, an action that sparked widespread outrage in Peru. In naming the activists, the group urged prosecutors to drop legal proceedings against two journalists who covered the December 8 event, Associated Press photographer Rodrigo Abd and Reuters video journalist Herbert Villaraga. Officials have accused participants of permanently damaging one of the country’s most important cultural treasures by using the fragile desert at the site as the backdrop for Greenpeace’s environmental message.
