    Background: Peru's President Juan Velasco Alvarado opened his first official tour of the country's vast Amazon jungle region on Saturday (30 September) with a visit to Pucalpa, 520 miles (850 kilometres) north-east of Lima.

    Timed to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the military revolution in Peru, the tour by President Velasco marked what he described as "the start of a programme of radical reforms for this long-neglected area".

    Thousands of Indian tribes folk left their villages in the dense jungles around the Amazon to greet the president when he arrived by air in Pucalpa. He told them they were included in his "revolutionary process" for Peru, and that he intended to integrate them into national life.
