Nothing unusual there: Guatemala has a murder rate four times higher than Mexico's, worse in fact than Iraq's for civilians during the war. What was extraordinary is that Rosenberg knew, for certain, he was about to be killed. Rosenberg's lover had been murdered a few weeks before. He was driven to investigate things, he told his friends, that would inevitably lead to his death. A video he recorded days before he died accused the president of his murder.

Authorities standing outside prison STORYLINE: A riot at a prison outside the Guatemalan capital killed 17 inmates and seriously injured at least 30 others, authorities said on Tuesday. Trouble began after hundreds of prisoners demanding more visiting rights and calling for the dismissal of some guards staged a small uprising, seizing part of the 1,228-inmate Pavoncito prison late on Monday. One prisoner was killed and three more were injured, but authorities sent in negotiators and thought they could end the riot without further violence, said a spokesman for the Guatemala City fire department. Negotiations never got off the ground, however. As talks with authorities broke down, a group of prisoners captured Julio Beteta, an inmate who police say controlled drugs and weapons distribution within the prison. The Guatemala fire department said inmates used makeshift knives and machetes to decapitate Beteta and then "paraded his head around in front of other prisoners." Prison authorities confirmed that one of the inmates who died had been decapitated, but said the victim hadn't been identified. The decapitation touched off a bloody battle between several different inmate factions, and prisoners began using machetes to try to seize control of different parts of the prison. The riot took a turn for the horrific when members of one gang rounded up 14 injured prisoners from another gang, doused them with gasoline and set them on fire, Najera said. All of those set ablaze died of the resulting burns. Police agents in riot gear took back the prison and restored order early on Tuesday. Two more inmates who were injured in clashes with police died in a nearby hospital after authorities had put an end to the riot. At least 30 inmates were rushed to a string of area hospitals were they were being treated for serious machete wounds. Pavoncito is a penitentiary on Guatemala City's outskirts where prisoners are taken before or during their trials.

Guatemala's new president- Alvaro Arzu- was inaugurated Sunday in a ceremony in Guatemala City. Arzu is the third democratically elected president to take power since military rule ended in 1986. The new president will replace Ramiro de Leon Carpio who was appointed by the Congress in 1993 after his predecessor Jorge Serrano tried unsuccessfully to seize absolute power. Wearing the white and sky-blue presidential sash Arzu urged his countrymen to work hard for Guatemala's future. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "And we've lived a recent history of internal conflict which has divided us filled us with pain. It is a big challenge and a difficult road and that's why we must make a bigger effort and develop our capabilities, our values and our strengths in order to advance." SUPER CAPTION: Alvaro Arzu, President of Guatemala Arzu- a former Guatemala City mayor- narrowly defeated lawyer Alfonso Portillo in the January 7 runoff. His pro-business Advanced National Party will hold 43 of 80 seats in the legislature. Arzu has vowed to control the military, which remains influential and has long been blamed for the majority of Guatemala's human rights abuses. He has also promised to tackle Guatemala's most daunting problems: widespread crime, severe poverty and a 35-year-old civil war which has cost at least 120-thousand lives. The new president will face a difficult challenge. But with a legislative majority and a lack of allegiance to the military many hope Arzu will carry out his promises to sweep away the bootprint of prior dictatorships.

Crossfire ensued, leaving one woman dead and 22 wounded, one of them brain dead. '(They)exploded a grenade against one of the vehicles of the Prison System.

Several heavy weapons like AK-47 were found inside. No arrests were reported after the National Civil Police (PNC) searched the area. Further investigation would be done through the surveillance cameras nearby. ’Fear is what we feel, fear that something would happen to us. I was with my two kids when they started shooting. It sounded as if they were fireworks at first. When I saw them draw their guns and start shooting, what I did was grabbed my kids and threw them into my own truck,’ said witness Manuel Carias. Ochoa was detained on June 22, 2012, over charges of abscondence, assault, possession of illegal firearms and organized extortions.

Thousands of people take to the streets of the Guatemalan capital demanding President Alvaro Colom's resignation. Their protests come after prominent lawyer Rodrigo Rosenberg was murdered. He was killed in an upscale suburb of Guatemala City on Sunday. This video footage and a written statement emerged after his death.   In the film, Rosenberg says Colom will order a hit man to kill him. [Rodrigo Rosenberg, Murdered Lawyer]: "If you are seeing this message it means I have been murdered by President Alvaro Colom with the help of Don Gustavo Alejos and Mr. Gregorio Valdez." He also accuses the president and those around him of being involved in a money laundering scheme. [Rodrigo Rosenberg, Murdered Lawyer]: "The reason I am dead and the reason why you are seeing this message is only and exclusively because during my final moments I was the lawyer of Mr. Khalil Musa and of his daughter Marjorie Musa, who were cowardly murdered by President Alvaro Colom with the knowledge of his wife Sandra de Colom and the help of Gregorio Valdez and Gregorio Alejos." The incident has angered many here, who say without justice a civil war could break out. [Jorge Armando Callejas, Representative, Group Against Guatemalan President]: "In the future, if there is no justice, a civil war will break loose, because we are facing lies told by the government and their followers." The government denies the accusations. [Fernando Barillas, Government Spokesperson]: "The government categorically rejects that accusation, which through recordings and written declarations have been distributed in some media." A U.N. backed body will investigate the case after it said the Attorney General's office may not be able to carry out an independent investigation.
