GUATEMALA CITY - A Guatemalan court sentenced 36 alleged members of a powerful Mexican drug cartel to prison on Wednesday for various crimes, including dismembering a state prosecutor who was investigating the gang.

Guatemala has been struggling to contain drug cartels that have spread their operations into Central America to smuggle South American cocaine to the United States.
