Unfortunately, stories in the U.S. media (including the widely distributed AP article which appeared in most papers on Sunday) were datelined Punta Gorda, Belize. The water taxi was coming from Puerto Barrios, Guatemala, and the incident apparently occurred in Guatemalan waters. To the casual reader, who probably has only a minimal grasp of Central America geography, the articles appear to suggest that the crime was in Belize, since it was a Belizean-owned water taxi and several Belizeans were killed. Also, the owner of the leading hotel in PG, American-born but now a Belize citizen, was shot in the hijacking, but happily is now recovering in the hospital in Belize City.
