NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Protesters took to the streets of Lima on Friday (March 11) against presidential frontrunner Keiko Fujimori, who looks set to be the country's next leader after the electoral court disqualified two of her rivals. Keiko Fujimori, the centre-right daughter of Peru's imprisoned former president Alberto Fujimori, is the front-runner in this year's election but her links to his authoritarian rule could affect her results. Languishing in a prison on the outskirts of the capital Lima, 77-year-old Alberto Fujimori remains a deeply divisive figure in the Andean nation. He is revered by many for quashing a bloody guerrilla insurgency during his 1990-2000 presidency and turning around an economy in ruins, but is loathed by others for human rights abuses and corruption convictions.
