"A former Guatemalan solider accused of taking part in a brutal massacre during the Central American nation's long-lasting and bloody civil war was extradited to the U.S. where he faces immigration fraud charges.

Jose Sosa Orantes was turned over Friday by officials in Canada, where he had been in custody since last year on U.S. charges of lying about his role in Guatemala's war when he applied for American citizenship in 2008, federal authorities said.

Sosa was a member of a Guatemalan military unit known as the "kaibiles" and helped command a unit assigned to track down suspected guerrillas who had stolen military weapons, according to court documents."
