Guatemalan Village Mob Kills 5 After Girl Goes Missing

A Guatemalan official says a mob beat and then shot to death five men suspected of kidnapping a 15-year-old girl.

Police spokesman Donald Gonzalez says hundreds of townspeople from San Pedro Soloma seized the men, beat them with rocks and then shot them in a soccer field.

Gonzalez says authorities are still searching for the girl.

Officials estimate more than 300 people have died in vigilante mobs in Guatemala since 1996.
