Guatemalan mayor Castillo Medrano shot dead

The mayor of the eastern Guatemalan town of Jutiapa has been shot dead as he waited to have his hair cut at a barber's.

Witnesses say Carlos Enrique Castillo Medrano, 39, was killed by two unidentified men who shot at him six times before escaping on a motorbike.

His death came as President Otto Perez Molina addressed the nation to mark his first year in office and hailed "a historic decline in violence".

2. They don't have a chance until the get the "Iron Fist " Molina out of the Presidency.

Instead of being tried for his atrocities against the Guatemalan people during the civil war, he's running the country.

One day they will be free. Just not right away, clearly.
