PERU: Humala's Popularity Drops Below 50%; Touts Rebel Captures.


     President Ollanta Humala's popularity is plummeting...after 5 deaths in new protests at Newmont's proposed Conga gold mine.
     He is now polling at less than 50% approval.
     Humala went on TV and announced the capture of 11 Shining Path rebels...and the freeing of 10 children...alleged to be in combat training. 
     Lima's military has suffered many embarrassing setbacks...and Humala has seen resignations from his own cabinet and party.
