July 08, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

A Spanish judge has issued international warrants for the arrest of two former Guatemalan leaders on genocide charges.

National Court Judge Santiago Pedraz issued warrants on charges of genocide, torture, terrorism and illegal detention against Gen. Efrain Rios Montt, Gen. Oscar Mejia Victores and six other men, according to a court statement.

The case stems from charges filed in Spanish courts in 1999 by Guatemalan Nobel Peace laureate Rigoberta Menchu.
