Antauro Humala

Antauro Humala Tasso is a Peruvian nationalist and former army major.

Four police officers and one gunman died on the first day of the siege. The following day Humala agreed to surrender, though had still failed to do so by the third day, claiming that the government had reneged on its promise to guarantee a "surrender with honour". Eventually he surrendered and was taken to Lima under arrest on 4 January 2005.

He and his brother Ollanta Humala had previously led 50 followers in a brief and unsuccessful uprising against President Alberto Fujimori during the dying days of his regime in October 2000. The two brothers call the movement they lead the "Movimiento Etnocacerista".
