Ceremony to clear bad energy after Bush visit

‘Maya leaders are to perform a special cleaning ceremony at ancient ruins to clear bad energy after a visit by President Bush.

Mr Bush is due at the Mayan ruins of Iximche in Guatemala as part of his tour of the Latin American region, reports the BBC.

But after he leaves, Maya protesters said they would hold a ceremony to restore peace and harmony to the area.

Morales Toj said: “We will burn incense, place flowers and water in the area where Mr Bush has walked to clean out the bad energy.”

Indigenous leader Rodolfo Pocop complained: “No, Mr Bush, you cannot trample and degrade the memory of our ancestors. This is not your ranch in Texas.”‘
