GUATEMALA At least eight women have been killed in Guatemala over the past 24 hours, among them four minors, according to reports released Sunday by the security forces and emergency aid bodies.

In a residential neighborhood in the western part of the capital another 35-year-old woman, identified as Lesbia Hernandez, was shot to death by a man who came into her business allegedly intent on robbing her.

In an isolated part of the town of Flores Costa Cuca, about 230 kilometers (143 miles) west of the capital, authorities found the bodies of Odilia Vasquez, 43, and her daughter Victoria Alonso, 23.

According to the report on the matter by the National Civil Police, both women were local residents and were shot to death by unknown killers.
