Pena de Muerte
Guatemala's congress restored the death penalty yesterday after a six year intermission. President Colom is said to be personally against the pena de muerte, but erstwhile rival Otto Pérez Molina described it this week as "the only method of disuading the delinquents." Over the past month eleven bus drivers have been murdered, which has generated a certain reluctance to turn up for work amongst the remainder.
