Police have found the bodies of three Salvadorean politicians and their driver in a bullet-riddled and burnt-out car outside Guatemala City.
The three men were members of the governing Arena party of El Salvador, and were deputies to the Central American Parliament.
One of them was the son of the party's late founder, Roberto D'Aubuisson.
D'Aubuisson was accused of being behind the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero in 1980.
The four killings followed a controversial request by the Salvadorean Congress to honour Roberto D'Aubuisson, who died of cancer in 1990.
