Former Guatemalan dictator to stand trial on genocide charges – latimes.com

Some conservative Guatemalans continue to believe that Rios Montt is a national hero whose “hard hand” anti-crime strategies and scorched-earth tactics against Marxist rebels and those suspected of supporting them saved the country from ruin.

But liberal groups and human rights advocates have long hoped that Rios Montt would be forced to answer in court for the atrocities carried out by security forces during his brief rule. The current charges, which Rios Montt denies, allege that he ordered the killing of more than 1,700 indigenous Mayas in the remote Ixil area.
