Another source in Peru told that 33 Chinese tourists were in the hotel during the assault and all are now safe. 

Tourists reportedly from China and the United States were taken hostage in Inkaterra, a luxury hotel located in the Amazon Reserve. A governor of the Madre de Dios region said the kidnapping took place between 8:30 pm to 9 pm, describing it as a “worrying situation".
