The massacre was brutal.

More than 200 men, women and children in Guatemala  were killed, often after being struck by a sledgehammer  in the 1982 attack on the village of Dos Erres.

A former Guatemalan army commander accused of participating in the massacre was returned to the U.S. on Friday following his extradition from Calgary, Canada, Reuters reports.

Jorge Sosa, 54, is accused of lying about his past to gain U.S. citizenship, but has not been charged in connection with the attack because the U.S. has no jurisdiction in Guatemala, Reuters reported.
