Guatemala: US Embassy Issues Security Alert

On 8 August 2018, the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala City issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “Event: There is potential for an uptick in gang violence throughout the month of August. August 15 is the anniversary of a 2005 gang war between Barrio 18 and MS-13, and gang members could target rivals in retaliation for the violence committed during the 2005 rift. While members of the community are not targeted, incidents could occur in public places. As a preventative measure, the police have increased random checkpoints, traffic stops and vehicle searches throughout Guatemala City. “As a precaution, during the month of August U.S. Embassy personnel must request permission in advance of any meetings at the courts or within the judicial system in Guatemala City as there are reported planned attacks by the Barrio 18 gang against Guatemalan judicial authorities.”
