Guatemala’s only human-rights group contended that 120 people have disappeared this year, even though a civilian government ended three decades of military rule in January. A report released Monday supports claims by Amnesty International and other human-rights organizations that Guatemala is one of the worst human-rights violators in the Western Hemisphere. The new report by Mutual Support Group said the 120 peasant farmers, workers and students disappeared over the past five months “despite the installation of a democratic system.” President Vinicio Cerezo was inaugurated Jan. 14.
