Peru's indigenous Amazon groups say they plan to launch their own political party ahead of elections next year.

Indigenous leader Alberto Pizango said it would campaign to protect the rainforest and indigenous rights in the Andes mountains as well as the Amazon.

Mr Pizango - who is on bail on charges of leading violent protests last year - said he might stand for president.
