Guatemala's former dictator General Efraín Ríos Montt enters the court after Tribunal President Yasmin Barrios announced that judges overseeing the trial will not accept another judge's ruling that the case should start over, one day after a judge ordered the suspension of the genocide trail against Rios Montt and General Jose Mauricio Rodriguez Sanchez in Guatemala City, Friday, April 19, 2013. Rios Montt seized power in a March 23, 1982 coup, and ruled until he himself was overthrown just over a year later. Prosecutors say that while in power he was aware of, and thus responsible for, the slaughter by subordinates of at least 1,771 Ixil Mayas in San Juan Cotzal, San Gaspar Chajul and Santa Maria Nebaj, towns in the Quiche department of Guatemala's western highlands.
