Military Liaison Office of U.S. Embassy Investigates Stabbing Incident

Carlos Moreno

The United States Embassy in Belize is reaching out to the injured naval officer.  While details of the near-fatal attack were sparse this morning, Ambassador Carlos Moreno told the media that the Military Liaison Office is looking into the incident.

“I just learned about that this morning when you probably learned about it.  My understanding is that an off duty tourist, who is a female assigned to the United States Coast Guard, on vacation I presume, was stabbed sometime earlier this morning or last night in San Pedro.  We’ve just been made aware of it; our consular section is attending to the matter, as well as our MLO [Military Liaison Office] to check on her condition.”
