"At least eleven ships stall at mineral export terminal."
There were at least 11 boats waiting to be loaded or unloaded at the port of Callao, said Wilmer Esteves. The back-up occurred at a terminal used to export minerals from Peru's central Andes.
Peru is a top metals exporter and is the world's second largest zinc producer.
