Peru's Armed Forces were represented by some 10,000 personnel, who were joined by contingents from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela.
Among the foreign units was a detachment of Argentina's Regiment of Mounted Grenadiers General San Martin.
The parade is attended by Peru's newly sworn-in President Ollanta Humala, ministers, congressmen, senior civil and military officials and thousands of people. (Andina)
