Anniversary of massacre in Mexico approaches

This Saturday marks the tenth anniversary of a massacre in Mexico that left dozens of Tzotzil Indians dead.

The December 22, 1997, attack took place amid a growing indigenous rights movement in Chiapas in southern Mexico. The Zapatista rebels blamed military and political leaders for killing about 45 Tzotzil Indians.

The government prosecuted 41 men who were involved in the massacre. But some say the people who ordered the attack haven't been held responsible.
