Help

Dozens of people have been killed and many more are missing after a 7.4-magnitude quake hit off Guatemala's Pacific coast, the president has said.

Otto Perez Molina declared a national alert and advised people to evacuate tall buildings as a precaution.

Officials said landslides had buried roads and it would take 24 hours to restore links to the quake-hit area.
