Three former Guatemalan cabinet ministers were arrested on corruption charges amid claims they used public money to buy houses, boats, and a helicopter for a former president. The authorities want to detain two more senior politicians as part of a crackdown that has already seen former president Otto Perez Molina jailed.
All of the former officials served under Perez Molina, who faces charges of money laundering and conspiracy. He denies any wrongdoing.
Former defence ministers Ulises Anzuelo and Manuel Lopez Ambrosio were arrested, as was ex-interior minister Mauricio Lopez Bonilla.
