Peru has ordered the expulsion of a British missionary who was dubbed a “Tarzan agitator” for helping Amazon tribes to resist the incursion of oil, gas and mining companies into the rainforest.

The government has told Brother Paul McAuley, who runs an civil association in the jungle town of Iquitos and promotes indigenous rights, to leave Peru within seven days and never return.
