A Guatemalan judge announced Thursday that she was dropping the genocide trial against former dictator Efrain Rios Montt due to a pending appeal.

"The proceedings are being canceled," Judge Carol Patricia Flores said. "I am not doing this because I want to but because it has been ordered by the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court."
