Devastating mudslides hit Guatemala

At least 22 killed after storms force thousands to abandon their homes.

    At least 22 people have been killed after torrential rain and mudslides hit parts of Guatemala.

    Thousands have been left homeless, and a new storm with more rain, is on its way. Many who have been forced from their homes have sought safety in an improvised tent city while waiting for floodwaters to subside.
