The so-called wall of shame divides two areas in Lima. One belongs to the richest part of town, the other is a slum of wooden shacks, highlighting the Peruvian capital's divide. Jurriaan van Eerten reports.
Massive flooding in Peru has left at least 67 people dead. Dramatic scenes of the flooding posted on social media have heightened the sense of chaos.
Floods and landslides are nothing unusual during Peruvian summers so the national disaster relief program should not have failed across the country. There is no reason, save a lack of unified political will.
Lima is still reeling from the flooding and mudslides that have left Peru's capital in a state of emergency. With more rain predicted, the situation is becoming increasingly desperate as Jurriaan van Eerten reports.
