Drug gangs have left four severed heads and two headless bodies in prominent places of Guatemala City – the first head was left in a shopping complex, the second in the congress office, the third in front of a fire station and the fourth in a residential area. The police have not been able to identify the heads or the bodies. The police feel that the killings are revenge oriented to rebel against the new restrictions imposed in the country’s prison system like frequent transfer to different jails so that the drug lords cannot operate freely from behind the bars.
