Guatemala Congress set on fire & protesters storm building.

Protests in Guatemala turned violent on Saturday when part of the country's Congress was set on fire and protesters stormed the building.

The fire, which according to local media had been set by protesters throwing flaming objects, could be seen rising from a window of the Congress building.
