Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei was unharmed this Saturday (19) of a shooting attack on his entourage while traveling through a village in the northwestern department of Huehuetenango, a local broadcaster reported. The radio added that “there are wounded, but President Alejandro Giammattei is unharmed and safe”.

The Presidency has not yet provided further details on this fact. Journalists from the state news agency who accompanied the president on this work trip explained that they are fine and that they are returning to the capital.

“It’s ok and we went to the first activity”, said journalist Brenda Larios, who accompanied the president in La Laguna.

There, Giammattei and his Minister of Agriculture, José Ángel López, participated in an activity to encourage small producers and entrepreneurs to promote their articles and sell them.

“Local products are being promoted in Huehuetenango, to support the small producer”, said the president, according to the official agency.
