PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: A Guatemalan man was shot and killed on Saturday morning, allegedly by Belize Defence Force soldiers in the Chiquibul National Park.

Guatemalan media reports identify the dead man as Thomas Ramirez.

Prensa Libre today carried a report which said that two farmers were working on their plantation when the incident happened.

While the Guatemalan press is saying that the shooting happened in the San Marcos Community, sources say the shooting happened inside Belize’s Chiquibul Forest Reserve.

Thomas Ramirez’ body is at the morgue in San Ignacio town.

There has been no official word from Belizean authorities as yet about this incident.

    we need to commend our security forces. They are doing a good job in protecting the Belizean Land. Guatemalans just feel like they can come into Belize and do what they want. If they fire at the BDF well most naturally they will have to shoot aswell.
