GUATEMALA-HUMAN RIGHTS-RIOS MONTT-TRIAL

Former Guatemalan de facto President (1982-1983), retired General Jose Efrain Rios Montt, 86, is seen during the opening trial on charges of genocide during his de facto 1982-83 regime, in Guatemala City on March 19, 2013. Rios Montt, who stands trial despite defense attempts to postpone the start of the historic proceedings, is accused of ordering the execution of 1,771 members of the indigenous Ixil Maya people in the Quiche region. The trial marks the first time genocide proceedings have been brought in relation to the 36-year civil war in Guatemala that ended in 1996, leaving an estimated 200,000 people dead, according to United Nations estimates.
