The former president of Peru, Alberto Fujimori, is to stand trial on charges of human rights violations in November, a Peruvian judicial panel has ruled.
Mr Fujimori was extradited from Chile in September
The trial will centre on allegations of murder and kidnapping related to the activities of death squads in the 1990s, Judge Cesar San Martin said.
Mr Fujimori, 69, who was extradited from Chile last month, faces up to 30 years in jail if convicted.
The former president will then face two other major trials for corruption.
There will also be a fourth trial over allegations that Mr Fujimori ordered an illegal search of the apartment of the wife of jailed ex-spy chief Vladimiro Montesinos.
Mr Fujimori is currently being held at a police base in the capital, Lima.
