By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Saturday, Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei escaped unharmed after the occupants of a car opened fire near the presidential delegation visiting Huehuetenango, Reuters report. 

Members of the Guatemalan military were reportedly conducting a checkpoint guarding the presidential delegation when the occupants of a car opened fire. The Guatemalan military exchanged fire and the gunmen fled toward the Mexican border.

The President was reportedly about 1 mile away from the scene. 

“We inform the people of Guatemala and the international community that the president is unharmed and was evacuated from the area in a timely manner,” a statement from the Guatemalan government said.

Authorities in Mexico detained 4 Guatemalans and a Mexican who was injured during the gunfire.
