Two New Zealanders are among the passengers aboard a cruise ship that's fallen victim to bandits on the Amazon River in Peru.
The bandits used a small boat to reach and board the Amazon Discovery ship where they robbed the passengers.
The New Zealand Embassy in Santiago, Chile is helping the two Kiwis who were involved.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade says the New Zealanders are safe and their families are being contacted.
The passengers also include Australians and Americans.
