A Guatemalan Navy Gun Ship has run aground on the reef in Belize's southern waters. The report was received early this morning, and after a three hour boat ride to the site, the Belize Coast Guard officers found the ship near Glover's Reef, where it had run aground.

That's way inside Belizean territorial waters, and like the general public, and it has raised, eyebrows, alarms and the nation's collective blood pressure. After all, what were the Guatemalans doing in Belizean waters, and how did they end up on the reef?

George Lovell - CEO, Ministry of National Security
"As we speak, we are putting together a task force that will be deployed out into the area and the task force will be made up of all the relevant agencies that normally deals with these type of groundings. Based on any certification that they give to us in terms of what they experience out on the ground, claims will obviously have to be made for damages against the Guatemalan Coast Guard and the Guatemalan Government."

Reporter
"How does that work in the light of ongoing dispute between both countries? The territorial dispute between Belize and Guatemala."
George Lovell - CEO, Ministry of National Security
"This is the first and for me to say how it works we will just see and time will tell, but we will make a claim just like we will make whenever there is any damage to our reef."
