    Thanks for the coverage, Xeni.  I never would have known about this if it weren’t for your tweets.

    El Pais says that Flores annulled the trial, but reading different sources it’s not clear whether the whole trial or just part of the testimony.  What’s the scoop?

    What the Expletive Deleted?  Here’s the report from Democracy Now.  Alan Nairn had been supposed to testify today.  

    At least according to Nairn, the judges and prosecutors had been threatened with assassination by the army if they didn’t drop the trial.
