At Least 73 Minors Missing after Guatemala Volcano Eruption, Authorities Say

GUATEMALA CITY – The number missing after last month’s Fuego volcano eruption has been raised to 332 people, 73 of which are minors, according to Guatemala’s National Coordination for Disaster Reduction.

The figure was provided to EFE by the department spokesperson, David De Leon, after the authorities updated the number of the missing from 197 to 332 and confirmed at least 113 deaths.

However, the figure is very different from the one provided by volunteer group Antigua al Rescate, which reported that there are more than 2,900 dead and missing in ground zero in San Miguel Los Lotes, with 470 of those children.

In addition to these figures, the eruption of Fuego on June 3, the largest in recent years, has left about 50 people injured, more than 3,000 evacuated from surrounding areas and more than 1.7 million Guatemalans affected in the departments of Escuintla, Sacatepequez and Chimaltenango.
