A GUATEMALAN MAYAN QUICHE MAN CARRIES A SMALL WOODEN COFFIN WITH THE REMAIN OF HIS RELATIVES KILLED IN 1982 IN GUATEMALA.


A Guatemalan Mayan Quiche Indian man carries a small wooden coffin containing the remains of his relatives, killed in a massacre in 1982 in Xolcuayl, Guatemala, February 02. In February 28, 1982, a military patrol killed 99 people in the highland village of Xolcuay, some 90 miles north west of Guatemala City, during the country's 36-year civil war. Thanks to a grant by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Dutch government, the Guatemalan Foundation for Forensic Anthropology (FAFG), exhumed and buried the remains of 35 people. Human rights groups believe there are hundreds of clandestine cemeteries in Guatemala stemming from the Guatemalan army's "scorched earth" counter-insurgency campaign.
