A Canadian man has been lynched in the Peruvian Amazon after being accused of killing a local spiritual leader.
Every year, thousands of foreign tourists travel to the Peruvian Amazon to experiment with ayahuasca, a bitter, dark-coloured brew made of a mixture of native plants.

But it is also increasingly consumed by Western tourists looking for mind-altering experiences, sometimes with deadly consequences.
Nothing was said about the Hovitos.
