Guatemala's highest court has told the nation's top prosecutor to step down, seven months before her term is up.

Claudia Paz y Paz is known for her success fighting organised crime and prosecuting a former dictator.

Human rights advocates think the country's rich and powerful interfered in the Constitutional Court's decision, fearing Paz's determination to fight impunity.

Paz was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2013. Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports from Guatemala City.
