GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — Guatemala's attorney general says a judge has granted her request for an order to detain President Otto Perez Molina in connection with a government corruption case that has thrown the country into turmoil.

Thelma Aldana says Judge Miquel Angel Galvez issued the order Wednesday afternoon on crimes of illicit association, fraud and receiving bribe money related to a widespread customs fraud ring in which the vice president has already been jailed and faces charges.

Aldana spoke late Wednesday to the Canal Antigua television station.
