In this May 23, 2013 photos, an Ixil Mayan child writes the name of a surrounding village on the hand of anthropologist Edgar Hernandez, before the start of an exhumation of a clandestine grave near Ixtupil, Guatemala. Ixil Mayan farmers buried their loved ones who perished in the mountains while hiding from soldiers in clandestine graves during the country's bloody civil war. Forgotten by the state for centuries, the Ixil have recently come under the spotlight after a court found former dictator Efraín Ríos Montt guilty of genocide for the ruthless policies used during his 17-month-long regime against the Ixil. The sentence was later overturned by a higher court. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
