Human Rights: Victims split over suit against Mexican leader for 1997 massacre

Fox News Latino: "The indigenous organization targeted in a 1997 massacre in southern Mexico criticized the filing of a lawsuit against former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo for alleged complicity with the killings.

The suit was filed last week in U.S. District Court in Connecticut, where Zedillo, a Yale University faculty member, now lives. The legal action was brought by a Miami law firm on behalf of 10 plaintiffs who asked to remain anonymous.

In a statement criticizing the U.S. lawsuit, Las Abejas, a grassroots Roman Catholic group whose membership is mainly Tzotzil Indians, said that it is the "only organization which represents survivors of the Acteal massacre.""
