November 10, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

The remains of 15 people were found in a burned-out bus on a rural road in eastern Guatemala.

It was not clear how the fire started, but firefighters found gasoline containers at the scene and said there was no evidence that any passengers had tried to escape.

Holdups of buses by criminal gangs are common in Guatemala, a transit point for traffickers moving South American cocaine northward.
