On Tuesday, Judge Eddy Caceres Rodriguez was shot and killed by unidentified assailants in the Peten Department. The three assailants shot at the judge from a vehicle and then drove off. Police have no motive for the attack.
Rudel Alvarez, has asked the government to declare a state of siege, similar to the one currently being administered in Alta Verapaz, in his department . In the past, Colom has said that he would be open to extending states of siege to other departments but it just not at that time.
Honestly, I have no idea how one would work in the Peten. It's country's largest department and accounts for 1/3 of the country's entire area. It also borders both Mexico and Belize.
