GUATEMALA CITY - An angry mob in Guatemala that took 29 policemen
hostage released the officers Friday in exchange for talks with the
government on legalizing their lands and possibly dropping charges
against a jailed farm leader, a human rights official said.

The standoff began late Thursday when a crowd surrounded the police
station in the Caribbean coastal town of Livingston, disarmed the
agents and took them in boats to their remote village of Maya Creek.
