Alan Garcia, the former two-time president of Peru, died after shooting himself in the head in Lima on Wednesday.

Archive footage shows Garcia alongside other world leaders in Lima, 2008, and Madrid, 2010.

Garcia shot himself when police arrived to his home in the Peruvian capital to arrest him in connection with the ongoing 'Odebrecht' corruption investigation. He was rushed to hospital and underwent emergency surgery, but died a few hours later.

He was to be the third former Peruvian president to face charges as part of the scandal involving Odebrecht, which has admitted paying Latin American officials more than $800 million (€708 million) in bribes over decades in return for building contracts.
