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.
