The Siege

Episode Guide »
In December 1996, Nestor Cerpa, leader of the Peruvian Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement, and his squad of commandos seized the Japanese ambassador's residence in Lima, holding dozens of foreign diplomats and businessmen hostage for 126 days. Cerpa demanded the immediate release of his guerrilla comrades, but staked his life on the freedom of just one--his wife.
