Breaking News: Peru'S Former President Kills Himself Ahead Of Arrest


Former Peruvian President Alan García has died after shooting himself as police arrived at his home to arrest him over bribery allegations.

 

Mr García was rushed to hospital in the capital, Lima. His death was confirmed by current President Martín Vizcarra.

 

A crowd of supporters gathered outside the hospital and were held back by a line of police.

 

Mr García was accused of taking bribes from Brazilian construction company Odebrecht - claims he denied.

 

Officers had been sent to arrest him in connection with the allegations.

 

Interior Minister Carlos Morán told reporters that when police arrived, Mr García asked to make a phone call and went into a room and closed the door.

 

Minutes later, a shot rang out, Mr Morán said. Police forced the door open and found Mr García sitting on a chair with a bullet wound to his head.

 

Mr García underwent emergency surgery in the Casimiro Ulloa hospital in Lima, but to no avail.

 

In a post on Twitter, Mr Vizcarra sent he was "shocked" by the former president's death and sent his condolences to his family.

 

Mr García served as president from 1985 to 1990 and again from 2006 to 2011.

 

Investigators say he took bribes from Odebrecht during his second term in office, linked to a metro line building project in the capital.

 

Odebrecht has admitted paying almost $30m (£23m) in bribes in Peru since 2004.

 

But Mr García maintained he was the victim of political persecution, writing in a tweet on Tuesday that there was "no clue or evidence" against him.
