Peru's jailed ex-President Fujimori makes second plea for house detention

LIMA (Reuters) - Peru's jailed former President Alberto Fujimori made a second bid to be held under house arrest on Friday, saying he fears the 25-year prison sentence he is serving for human rights abuses and corruption will lead to his "slow death" behind bars.

Fujimori, 76, said a Peruvian court's 2013 decision to deny him house arrest for what remains of his sentence should be reverted to protect his health.
