Fuego Volcano: Guatemala’s Death Toll Rises to 69

Local Editor

Commenting on the toll from Guatemala's Fuego Volcano, the National Institute of Forensic Sciences said it has received 69 bodies and only 17 of them have so far been identified.


Fuego, located nearly 25 miles west of Guatemala City erupted on Sunday. The National Coordination for Disaster Reduction of Guatemala earlier announced that there were 65 victims.

The natural disaster prompted the evacuation of 3,260 people, while 1.7 million people across the country have been affected by the volcano.

Earlier in the day, Guatemalan authorities suspended rescue operation in the distressed area due to the foul weather conditions and decreased eruption activity.

On Monday, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales declared a three-day period of national mourning.
