May 08, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Two gunmen with automatic weapons fatally shot an honorary Belgian consul to Honduras as he drove in the country's second-largest city, San Pedro Sula.

Arnulfo Gutierrez's wife, Maria del Carmen Rapalo, was abducted 51 days ago, and her kidnappers may have instructed him to meet them to discuss ransom demands, said Danilo Valladres, the lead investigator.
