Sebastian Woodroffe: Peru orders arrest of two men over lynching

A judge in Peru has ordered the arrest of two suspects in the lynching of a 41-year-old Canadian man in the remote Amazon region last week. A video uploaded to social media showed Sebastian Woodroffe lying in a puddle while two men put a rope around his neck and then dragged him along. A local prosecutor says Mr Woodroffe may have been killed because locals suspected him of murdering a healer. Mr Jiménez said police were also investigating a number of other possible leads in Ms Arévalo's murder, including the theory that she may have been killed by another foreigner over an unpaid debt. Police are also still investigating who else may have been involved in Mr Woodroffe's lynching.
