A judge in Guatemala has ordered that former military leader Efrain Rios Montt stand trial for genocide.
Gen Rios Montt will face charges of crimes against humanity in connection with the killing of 1,771 indigenous Mayans during his rule in 1982-1983.
Prosecutors said he wanted to wipe out the indigenous group, which he suspected of supporting rebel fighters.
Gen Rios Montt, 86, is the first ex-president to be charged with genocide by a Latin American court.
