Ruge | Assignment Guatemala, 1968: An Early Encounter with Terrorism: "Neil walked over to me and told me, his voice trembling, that our ambassador, John Gordon Mein, had just been assassinated one block from the consulate. Neil had seen him lying on the median of the Blvd. La Reforma, covered with blood. Two ambassadors’ wives coming from a luncheon had passed the scene and thought they recognized Ambassador Mein by his white hair and the abandoned official car with its flag blowing in the breeze.. They had stopped at the consulate, extremely agitated, and informed Neil of the murder, whereupon Neil ordered his car and was the first at the scene to identify the Ambassador.
