A guard checks an Indian woman's bags as she enters a court where Guatemala's former dictator Jose Efrain Rios Montt is to stand trial on genocide charges in Guatemala City, Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Prosecutors hope to painstakingly prove through a detailed recreation of the military chain of command that Gen. Efrain Rios Montt must have had knowledge of the massacres of Mayan Indians and others in the Guatemalan highlands during one of the bloodiest phases of the country's long civil war. Because he held absolute power over the U.S.-backed military government, his failure to stop the slaughter is proof of his guilt, prosecutors and lawyers for victims say. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo)
