RAID IN GUATEMALA

Guatemalan police and soldiers seized 1,440 pounds of cocaine in a raid on a warehouse in the capital, one of their biggest hauls this year, authorities said Saturday.

One suspected drug trafficker trying to flee was wounded in a shootout with security forces during the raid Friday, the attorney general's office said.Seven others were arrested and accused of involvement in shipping the drug to the United States from Guatemala's south coast, a spokesman said.
