CNN.com - At least�6 killed in Guyana newspaper attack - Aug 9, 2006: "GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) -- About 10 men with automatic weapons stormed Guyana's largest newspaper, killing at least six people and wounding three in an attack that may be linked to a simultaneous protest at the South American nation's main prison, authorities said Wednesday.

The gunmen attacked just before midnight Tuesday, ordering employees in the printing department of the Kaieteur News to lie on the floor before shooting them and fleeing, acting Police Chief Henry Greene said."
