Radio stations, theaters struck by guerrillas

Unrest flared in Guatemala this weekend as guerrillas stormed a movie theater and set it on fire and occupied three Guatemalan radio stations, police said.

The radio stations were taken over simultaneously by rebels who forced announcers to leave and then broadcast anti-government statements.

Police said there were no casualties in the movie theater set ablaze by a commando squad.
