Accused of Genocide

Last week, General Héctor Mario López Fuentes was captured in Guatemala City, twenty-nine years after having initiated the execution of Plan Victoria 82, developed by the Army Chief of Staff and Efraín Ríos Montt’s de facto government. He is accused of having perpetrated genocide against the Maya Ixil people in the years 1982-83. More on this from NISGUA.

James Rodríguez, from MiMundo, has a piece of photo reportage on this latest news, from which comes the photograph of the accused in his pen. It is only in Spanish at the moment.

On another note, we hear from James that there is a new independent photo-reportage resource from Guatemala. You can follow Sin Requisa here.
