It's the last presidential debate before next week's run-off election in Peru. The two candidates - Keiko Fujimori and Pedro Pablo Kuczynski - take to the podium, hurling strong accusations at one another in front of a live audience. Kuczynski says voting for Fujimori would take the country back to the 90s, when her now-imprisoned father led the country. Fujimori tries to paint Kuczynski - a former World Bank Economist - as a man for big business and for the rich. She won the first round of the elections, and was leading the way in a poll released on Sunday. Elections will be held on June 5.
