FILE - In this March 17, 2015 file photo, Ashaninka Indian men, identified by locals as illegal loggers, tie tree trunks together to move them along the Putaya River near the hamlet of Saweto, Peru. Ashaninka activist Edwin Chota, a vocal foe of illegal logging, and three other men were slain nearby in 2014. Prosecutors blame rogue lumberjacks but the lone suspect arrested was released in 2016. The World Bank says some 80 percent of Peru’s timber exports are illegally harvested. (AP Photo/Martin Mejia)
