Call for Guatemala war justice

Breaking News

Amnesty International has called on the Guatemalan authorities to do more to provide justice for thousands of victims of the country's civil war.

More than 200,000 people - most of them civilians - were killed or disappeared between 1960 and 1996.

The group said that tens of thousands of cases have yet to be heard by the commission established to probe cases.

Amnesty called on the Guatemalan government to approve a law for a National Search Commission for the Disappeared.
