BOGOTA, Colombia (AA) - At least 4,078 people were murdered in the Central American country of Guatemala in 2021, according to the country's National Institute of Forensic Sciences.

The institute said in a written statement that most of the casualties were directly linked to firearms, and the figure was 3,500 in 2020.

Furthermore, the count of women victims was up by 28.5% in comparison with the previous year as the figure jumped from 507 to 652.

Despite the harsh and deterrent laws adopted in Central American countries in the past few years, murder and other violent incidents are constantly rising.
