Guatemala: Archive Update

A reader pointed out a follow-up to Guatemala's announcement that it will open its military archives. Apparently, some members of the armed forces are not ready to accept investigations into their dealings.
"We have information that the defense minister's family members received death threats from a group of ex-army officials upset about the de-classification of potentially compromising archives," Colom said at a news conference.
