Slain lawyer's videotaped accusations stun Guatemala

A controversial video in which a now-murdered lawyer accuses President Alvaro Colom of masterminding his killing has shaken this nation's fragile democracy.

In the video, which spread across the airwaves and Internet soon after the lawyer's bullet-riddled body was found Sunday, Rodrigo Rosenberg said he had first-hand knowledge of the president's role in the murder of a businessman and warned video viewers: "If you are watching this message, it is because I was assassinated by President Alvaro Colom with help from Gustavo Alejos," the president's secretary.

Rosenberg's charges underscore the public's deep mistrust for the government, said Marco Antonio Barahona, director of political research for the think-tank Association of Investigation and Social Studies
