Ixil indigenous women listen during the genocide trial of Guatemala's former dictator General Efrain Rios Montt and former General Jose Mauricio Rodriguez Sanchez, which a judge suspended during the proceedings in Guatemala City, Thursday, April 18, 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.
