A judge in El Salvador has reopened an investigation into the 1981 El Mozote massacre – considered one of the worst atrocities in the civil war.
The judge accepted a request put forward by three human rights groups to re-open the case based on a Supreme Court ruling in July.
The ruling overturned an amnesty for those who committed war crimes during the 1980 to 1992 conflict.
Some 75,000 people died in the civil war, with many of the victims children.
The July Supreme Court ruling declared the amnesty law, which was approved in 1993, unconstitutional.
