See the world: In Peru, nice day for a wet wedding
Every day on World Now, we highlight a remarkable shot from somewhere in the world. Today's shot comes from Ventanilla, Peru.
This is the second year that the Peruvian city has organized a group wedding in a pool on Valentine's Day, the Associated Press reported.
It's a moment of lightheartedness in Peru, where the news is often not so light. The country recently saw the capture of the last remaining ideologue in the Shining Path, a Maoist guerrilla group, but analysts say it isn't likely to stem the illicit cocaine trade in Peru that helped fund it, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
