Bracing for Tropical Storm Miriam, Guatemala went on alert Monday, but local forecasters predicted that the storm would dissipate over water after its deadly rampage through Central America and the Caribbean as Hurricane Joan. "The most likely thing is that it will be lost in the Pacific," Guatemalan Meteorology Institute director Estuardo Velazquez said. But U.S. meteorologists said they are not convinced the storm will dissipate over water.

Security forces Monday seized a prison run for more than 10 years by inmates who had built their own town complete with restaurants, churches, stores and illegal drug labs. Seven prisoners were killed when 3,000 police and soldiers firing automatic weapons stormed the Pavon prison. For years, corrupt guards patrolled the perimeter of the prison and ran the administration section, but an "order committee" of inmates controlled the rest. They smuggled in food, drink and luxury goods.
