GUATEMALA : Ex-Gen. Rios Montt Finally Charged With Genocide.


      Ex-Gen. Efrain Rios Montt, 85, will be tried for genocide and crimes against humanity.
     He ran Guatemala in 1982-83...when entire villages of Mayans were wiped out...in an effort to defeat rebels.
     Some 100 massacres killed 1,771 people...and displaced 29,000.
     A judge has placed him under house arrest.
     Rios Montt denies the charges.
     For 12 years...he had immunity because he was a congressman.
