A British environmental activist and Catholic missionary has been found dead at a hostel in Peru.
The body of Paul McAuley, aged 71, was discovered by students in the Amazon city of Iquitos.
An investigation has been launched and officials are questioning six people who lived at the youth hostel, which was run by Mr McAuley.
The activist, who was born in Portsmouth, had lived in the country for more than 20 years and was awarded an MBE for setting up a school in a poor community of the capital, Lima.
