In this May 22, 2013 photo, a soldier registers a car at the entrance to a military base on the outskirts of Nebaj, northwestern Guatemala. Seventeen years after the end of a bloody civil war that saw hundreds of their villages razed and thousands of their loved ones killed, the Ixil people still live in mud and wood houses in the most rugged and isolated parts of northwestern Guatemala. Largely ignored by authorities for centuries, the Ixil have came under the spotlight after former dictator Efrain Rios Montt was tried for genocide for the scorched-earth policies used against the Ixil during his 17 months in power in the 1980s.
