MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A Guatemalan government official said on Tuesday that a judge has issued an arrest order for former attorney general Thelma Aldana, who helped lead investigations into top politicians including the current president.

Aldana worked with a U.N.-backed anti-corruption body that sought to impeach President Jimmy Morales.
