Canadian man lynched in Peru rainforest after being accused of murdering shaman

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.

The hallucinogenic cocktail, also known as yage, has been venerated for centuries by indigenous tribes in Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia as a cure for all sorts of ailments. But it is also increasingly consumed by Western tourists looking for mind-altering experiences, sometimes with deadly consequences.

Nothing was said about the Hovitos.
