Guatemala: Exhuming the Disappeared

There has been some focus on the identification of bodies in mass graves in Guatemala recently. A few weeks ago, Latin America News Dispatch had a photo essay on exhumations outside Villalobos. The Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Association is now also investigating mass graves in Verbena cemetery, where they believe over 800 people may be buried.

Guatemalans are calling for further government action to resolve the cases of the disappeared, and so is the Red Cross.
