This morning near 10:00. a.m., Guatemalan villagers, armed with machetes threatened the construction workers and the Belize Defense Force Soldiers. They also wanted to burn the construction which was for Friends for Conservation and Development. The OAS and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are both expected to address the issue.

Guatemalans attack at Valentin

On October 3, 2014, a mob of about 40 Guatemalans threatened to burn down a new conservation post which Belize is building at Valentin Camp, Cayo, inside the Caracol Archaeological Reserve, in response to incessant illegal incursions by Guatemalans who penetrate the area to carry out a range of illegal activities, including logging, hunting, looting of Mayan artefacts, and gold panning.
