Report: Amazon tribe may have fallen victim to drug traffickers

10 08 2011

Suspected Peruvian drug traffickers have destroyed a guard post protecting a recently discovered indigenous tribe in Brazil’s Amazon rain forest, the aid group Survival International reports.

Aerial images of the uncontacted tribe in Brazil's Amazon rain forest were released in February.

Aerial film and still images of the tribe were first shown to the world in February. The Brazilian government’s National Indian Foundation established the guard station near the tribe’s territory along Brazil’s border with Peru to protect the Indians from outsiders.

Survival International said Monday that Brazilian authorities can now find no sign of the tribe.
