6 Belizean Fishermen Held in Guatemala Now Safely Back Home

At news time tonight, six Belizeans are safely back home after being held briefly by a Guatemalan coastal patrol vessel. The men were fishing in the Gulf of Honduras when they were intercepted by the Guatemalan patrol in an area at sea at a point between the mouth of the Moho River, Toledo and Punta de Manabique, Izabal, Guatemala. A government press release says the Guatemalan Navy claimed that the Belizeans were illegally fishing in Guatemala. But quick action by authorities led to their release.
