Guatemala detains former VP Roxana Baldetti, who resigned as graft scandal implicated aide

Guatemalan authorities have detained former Vice President Roxana Baldetti, who resigned earlier this year after a corruption scandal reached into her inner circle.

The prosecutor's office said Friday that she is suspected of fiscal fraud.

The scandal at the customs agency involved kickbacks paid in exchange for lower import duties.

The corruption ring allegedly was led by Baldetti's private secretary.
