Bad border business!

Amandala Online: "In keeping with its habit of fomenting trouble between Belize and Guatemala at their western border, the sensation-seeking Guatemalan newspaper, La Prensa Libre, reported inaccurately that on Monday, August 22, a Guatemalan citizen had been wounded in the Adjacency Zone, on the Guatemalan side of the border, by a Belizean military patrol.

On Monday, August 22, 2011, the Belize Defence Force reported an incursion into Belize territory in the Chiquibul area of the Sapote Camp by armed illegal Guatemalans carrying weapons, one with a prohibited assault rifle, an AK-47, and stated that they (the Guatemalans) had opened fire on them."
