Peru to auction ex-spy chief Vladimiro Montesinos' jewels

The Peruvian government says it will auction gold watches and other jewellery seized from ex-intelligence chief Vladimiro Montesinos.

He is serving a long jail sentence for corruption and human rights abuses.

The authorities say they expect to raise at least $1m (£1.69m) from the sale of 152 items in Lima next month.
