San Salvador, El Salvador, Oct 24, 2018 / 15:00 pm
A court in San Salvador issued an arrest warrant for the man suspected of the March 24, 1980 killing of Saint Oscar Romero, who was canonized this month by Pope Francis.
The suspect is Álvaro Rafael Saravia, a 78 year old former army officer.
Charges against Saravia were dismissed in 1993 after an amnesty law prohibited criminal trials related to the country's civil war.
In 2017, however, Judge Rigoberto Chicas reopened the case, after the amnesty law was rescinded.
