Guatemala 'political' priest dead

Gunmen in Guatemala have shot dead a Roman Catholic priest who was twice a candidate for mayor of the capital.

Jose Maria Ruiz Furlan, 72, was shot several times as he left a church in a poor neighbourhood of Guatemala City.

Father Ruiz, regarded as a staunch defender of the poor, had often been criticised by his superiors in the Church for his involvement in politics.

Guatemala has yet to recover from the murder in 1998 of renowned human rights campaigner, Bishop Juan Gerardi.

2. Oh, no, not another of those
"right-wing death squads" that kill scores of people without ever being caught or even detected?

Don't they know that Guatemala has "democracy" now? /sarcasm
