Screengrabs from video I just shot, listening to Ríos Montt's testimony in the genocide trial (a few feet away from the defendant). Highlights from his testimony also in this BB post.

Brief update from Guatemala on the "estado de sitio" (state of emergency or state of siege) declared today. ~3500 Army troops, police sent in to crack down after protests against a canadian-owned metals mine some 45 mins from the capital here. Related news: US Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) met with Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina to discuss counter-terrorism cooperation, and how US and Guatemalan militaries can work together "to improve central american security."
