In Guatemala, a suspect in a bus bombing was arrested

On January 5th, Agence France-Presse news agency reported that police in Guatemala’s capital city arrested a woman suspected of involvement in a recent bus bombing.

At this time, the identity of the detainee has not yet been established. It is noteworthy that the shark gave two different names at the time of the arrest. However, according to the news agency, the tattoos found on the body of the suspect suggest that the woman belongs to one of the largest criminal clans. The police managed to find out her nickname – “La Paquetona”.

Recall that a bus exploded in a Guatemalan suburb on Monday night, January 3. At the time, seven people were killed and fifteen others were injured with varying degrees of severity. Initially it was reported that only four people were killed.

According to preliminary information, the cause of the explosion was a short circuit. Despite taking a suspect into custody, authorities are in no hurry to name the exact cause of the incident. According to unofficial data, the corresponding report is to be published on Thursday, January 6.

At the same time, it was reported that, based on data provided by the Guatemalan police, criminal gangs received more than $1.5 million from bus operators last year through extortion.
