Knockdown prices

It has been reported that a 22-year-old hitman called Aníbal Juarez López, nabbed on Tuesday by police as he attempted to whack a bus driver and his conductor, later confessed that his current rate is just Q300 ($38) for each murder he performs.

He had arrived on scene on a motorbike ridden by an accomplice (also arrested) and opened fire on the transport workers with his AK-47. Both victims were hospitalised with serious gunshot wounds.

12 bus company employees were killed in January, many of these hits carried out under the auspices of maras running protection rackets in the capital.

V reckons however that Juarez López may well have been deliberately under-reporting his earnings!
