GUATEMALA---The death toll in a rural Guatemala
bus crash rose to 46 on Tuesday, after two more
people died of injuries suffered in the vehicle s
plunge into a deep canyon.
The village of San Martin Jilotepeque mourned
most of the victims, including at least three babies
and the bus driver.
Wakes were held Tuesday for many of the victims,
who had been heading to the nation's capital when
the bus ran off the road.
Relatives reported the bus was so full that some
passengers stood, sat two to a seat or clung to the
doorway. Transportation authorities have said the bus
had seats for 54 people, but was carrying 90 at the
time of the crash. Town council secretary Marco Polo
Coloma said 41 people remained hospitalised. (AP)
VERACRUZ---Mud and sand slid off the side of a
hill after days of heavy rains and swept over two
homes, killing eight children and five adults in a
town in eastern Mexico, authorities said Tuesday.
Officials said two people were rescued alive from
the buried houses in Veracruz state.
Those killed included a woman, her five children
ranging in age from two to 11, and her mother. A
week-old baby, an eight-month-old boy and another
child also were among the dead.
Heavy rains have been falling across southeastern
and central Mexico in recent days.
Tropical Storm Fernand caused landslides and
flooding that killed 13 people in Veracruz state last
SANTIAGO---Protesters marking the 40th anniver-
sary of Chile s military coup are clashing with
police, throwing rocks and gasoline bombs and set-
ting up flaming barricades.
Police arrested 13 people early yesterday and said a
police officer was injured in overnight clashes. The
anniversary of the 1973 coup that brought the dictator
Augusto Pinochet to power is often marked by violence.
Pinochet oversaw a fierce aerial bombardment of
the presidential palace on September 11, 1973. Socialist
President Salvador Allende committed suicide rather
His death marked the start of a brutal 17-year dic-
tatorship. The government estimates 3,095 were
killed during Pinochet's rule, including about 1,200
who were forcibly disappeared. (AP)
LIMA---A study of mercury contamination from
rampant informal gold mining in Peru s Amazon
says indigenous people who get their protein mostly
from fish are the most affected, particularly their
The new research detailed Monday by the Carnegie
Institution for Science found mercury levels above accept-
able limits in 76.5 per cent of the people living in the
Madre de Dios region, both rural and urban populations.
"Most of the communities that had the highest
concentrations of mercury were native communities,"
said Luis E Fernandez, the project director.
The people in those communities had mercury
levels, based on hair samples, more than five times
maximum acceptable levels and 2.3 times greater
than those in non-indigenous communities, he said.
Fernandez said indigenous children had three times
more mercury in their bodies than children from
non-native communities, who tended to live in more
urban settings where they also obtained protein from
chicken and beef. (AP)
