Three gunmen on a commuter boat en route from Guatemala to Belize opened fire on the captain and passengers, killing at least five people, Guatemalan authorities said. Three survivors said they spent 17 hours floating together in the Gulf of Honduras until a fisherman found them. Others drowned as they waited for rescue. Five passengers were shot dead, naval Capt. Jose Maria Valladares said. Evelyn Rojas, 21, said that when the firing began, she jumped into the water.

Gunmen shot and killed nine diners Wednesday night in a downtown Guatemala City restaurant in what appeared to be a drug dealers' dispute over territory, police said. "About four or five armed individuals entered the restaurant, and then it all started," said National Civilian Police spokesman Faustino Sanchez. The shooting occurred near Guatemala City's notorious Gallito neighborhood, the main distribution point for the 3-million-strong capital's growing cocaine market.
