Storm rescue efforts hampered

Collapsed roads and highway bridges in Guatemala are complicating rescue efforts after Central America was drenched by Tropical Storm Agatha.

At least 178 people are dead, most of them in Guatemala.

Dozens of people there are still missing and rescue teams are struggling to reach remote rural communities.

Some 35,000 people remain in emergency shelters three days after the storm hit.
