Drug traffickers sought in Guatemala bus killings

GUATEMALA CITY -- Investigators in Guatemala announced Tuesday that a drug gang was responsible for the grisly killings of 15 Nicaraguans and a Dutch man aboard a bus in November.

United Nations investigators and Guatemalan police said they are looking for a total of 10 suspects and have already arrested one man who allegedly participated in killing the foreigners and then burning the bus.

U.N. anti-crime commissioner Carlos Castresana said three of the suspects are former police officers. Castresana's commission is aiding in the investigation.

Investigators say the drug gang was apparently looking for a rival trafficker's drug shipment when they stopped the bus in eastern Guatemala.
