1d59f488-5c43-4d7d-8596-040851bc748f-2060x1236Q24N (Prensa Latina) At least 63 children have been killed, as a result of the rise in violence sparked off in the first two months of the year in Guatemala, reports from the National Institute of Forensic Sciences (Inacif) said today.

This represents a decrease compared with the same period of the previous year,in which nearly 187 minors lost their lives due to crime.

Children’s rights activists have expressed their concern that, despite the decrease in numbers, they believe that there is a gradual increase in crime compared with the previous year, particularly with regards to children.
