Chajul, Guatemala

An Ixil Mayan woman from Xaxmoxan mourns as her sister, killed during the Guatemalan internal armed conflict in the early 1980s, is finally buried. The National Coordination for Guatemalan Widows (CONAVIGUA) and the Forensic Anthropological Foundation of Guatemala (FAFG) returned the remains of 14 wartime victims to their respective family members in the hamlet of Xaxmoxan in Chajul, in the Ixil Mayan highlands after successful exhumations of clandestine mass graves. Most of the victims perished in the mountainside between 1980 and 1983 as they fled the army's brutal scorched earth campaign against a civil population accused of supporting the guerrilla groups in the region.
