Guatemalan 1992 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Rigoberta Menchu (R) hugs a relative of a victim of Guatemala's civil war during the trial against former Guatemalan de facto President (1982-1983), retired General Jose Efrain Rios Montt, on charges of genocide committed during his regime, in Guatemala City, on May 10, 2013. Rios Montt was found guilty of genocide and war crimes on Friday in a landmark ruling stemming from massacres of indigenous people in his country's long civil war. Rios Montt thus became the first Latin American convicted of trying to exterminate an entire group of people in a brief but particularly gruesome stretch of a war that started in 1960, lasted 36 years and left around 200,000 people dead or missing.
