Guatemala hit by 7.4-magnitude earthquake
Dozens of Guatemalans are missing and at least 8 have been killed after a 7.4-magnitude earthquake hit off the Pacific coast, President Otto Perez Molina has said.
He has declared a national alert and advised people to evacuate tall buildings as a precaution.
Frightened people fled from offices and homes around the region, as buildings shook from Mexico City to San Salvador.
