Guatemalans protest over genocide retrial

Many worried justice will not be served after court overturns conviction of ex-military leader Efrain Rios Montt.

    Protesters have taken to the streets of Guatemala City just days after the country's top court overturned a genocide conviction against the country's former military leader, citing irregularities in the case.

    Efrain Rios Montt, who was previously sentenced to 80 years in prison, will get a second chance in court, and many are worried that justice will not be served.
