De León, head of the weekend supplement section of the leading daily Prensa Libre, was stabbed as he was leaving his house in central Guatemala City by an assailant who had been waiting in a nearby car for several hours, eyewitnesses reported. He died after three hours of surgery. Neither money nor personal documents were taken in the attack, local journalists reported, making robbery an unlikely motive.
