Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Associated Press photographer Rodrigo Abd’s work documenting the legacy of Peru’s “dirty war.” Thousands went missing during the conflict, which lasted from the early 1980s to 2000; since 2006, authorities have unearthed more than 2,900 sets of remains from the 15,000 estimated to have been “disappeared.” Abd’s photographs show the emotional second burial of men who were slain in the remote Andean village of Huallhua, in Ayacucho state, in 1990. Their remains were recently exhumed and returned for a proper burial, giving families a sense of closure nearly a quarter-century after their deaths.
