In a historic decision, a Guatemalan court announced today that both Rodriguez and Rios Montt, 86, will face trial for the genocide of indigenous peoples. The landmark decision marks the first time that genocide proceedings have been brought in the country over the 36-year civil war that ended in 1996, leaving an estimated 200,000 people dead, according to the UN.
