Manslaughter: Seven People, Including Infant, Shot In Guatemala (PHOTOS) by polokor60(m): 4:19pm On Oct 12, 2012
Six-year-old Carlos Daniel Gonzalez and his four-year-old sister Izabel survived by hiding from the killers as they shot dead their mother and father in the hamlet of 'Las Escobas' in Villa Canales municipality, Guatemala. In all, seven members of the Gonzalez family, including an eight-month-old baby and an eight- year-old boy, were slaughtered by the group of strangers. The killings are believed to have been over nothing more sinister than a row over land rights. After the bloody killings, the two terrified orphans returned to the crime scene with local authorities to explain what they had seen. According to watchdog International Crisis Group, Guatemala is one of the world's most dangerous countries, having a population of about 14million.
More than 96% of all crimes go unpunished in Guatemala, and corruption pervades all levels of government and the police. The country is overrun with violent gangs, and
violence is worst for the poorest people. The Guatemalan government reports that 6,500
people met violent deaths in 2009 and nearly 6,000 were slain in 2010. 41% of those deaths were linked to drug trafficking, while extortion was another common crime.
The Guatemalan Civil War ended in 1996 and the current president is Otto PĂ©rez Molina, whose Patriotic Party won the 2011 election.source www.m.naij.com/news/11423.html
