GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — Prosecutors say they have detained former Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom in a corruption case.

Colom governed from 2008 to 2012, and is the latest in a series of former presidents to face legal problems.

The special prosecutor for a case of questionable public bus purchases says Colom was arrested Tuesday.

Prosecutor Juan Francisco Sandoval says that Colom's former finance and interior ministers were also detained.
