Three Bangladeshis rescued in Guatemala

Guatemala City, Jan 3 (IANS/EFE) Three Bangladeshis along with 10 Ecuadorians were rescued from kidnappers in the Guatemalan town of Huehuetenango, authorities said.

The kidnappers had demanded that the hostages’ families in the US pay a ransom of $24,000 to set them free, the Attorney General’s Office said in a statement.

After the rescue operation, police arrested three men involved in the kidnapping.

The arrests were made after a family member of one of the Bangladeshis reported to New York authorities that his relative had been abducted.

That person provided the GPS coordinates of the building in Huehuetenango from which the kidnappers were calling to demand the ransom money.
