Women, girls murdered in Guatemala

Women, girls murdered in Guatemala
January 16 2013 at 08:56pm

Guatemala City - A wave of violence claimed the lives of six women and girls, including two young whose bodies were found early Wednesday dumped in the street, authorities said.

“Guatemala awoke in mourning,” said a statement from the Survivors' Foundation, a group that has sought to draw attention to violence against women in Guatemala. “We demand these crimes be solved.”

The girls, aged six and 12, displayed “apparent signs of strangulation,” a report by firefighters said.

Their bodies were found in the middle of the street in a southern district of the capital, near where the body of a 35-year-old woman was found “with a gunshot wound to the face and gagged with adhesive tape,” firefighters said.
