GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) - At least one woman was killed and 22 people were injured on Tuesday after a drive-by grenade attack outside Guatemala's second-largest hospital aimed at a jailed gang leader who was having a check-up, the country's interior minister said.

Marlon Ochoa, the brother of the founder of Guatemala's "Calle 18" gang, had been taken from prison for a check-up at the San Juan de Dios hospital in Guatemala City when the morning attack took place, Mauricio Lopez told reporters.
