Guatemalan immigrant arrested in Florida for 1982 Dos Erres massacre

Over three days in early December 1982, 17 elite soldiers known as kaibiles entered a village in the tropical forest of northeast Guatemala's Peten region. During three nightmarish days, kaibiles killed 251 children, women and men — one of the worst massacres of the Guatemalan civil war. Now three Guatemalan immigrants are wanted by U.S. immigration authorities in connection with the 1982 massacre. One has been arrested in Palm Beach County, Florida.
