Guatemala divorce raises eyebrows

Move seen as politically motivated by many as Sandra Colom seeks to replace ex-husband as president.

    Sandra Colom, Guatemala's former First Lady, will officially start her campaign to replace her ex-husband as president next month.

    The election is not until September, but there is much talk over the circumstances surrounding their divorce.

    Some even question whether the split was a politically motivated move, as close relatives of the president are constitutionally banned from running for high office.
