El Salvador bus clowns protest at passenger murder


Around 100 professional clowns, who make money by performing on public buses, marched through the capital of El Salvador to protest against the killing of a bus passenger by two robbers in clown outfits.

The man was shot five times when he declined to give money to two assailants dressed as clowns who boarded a public bus. No-one has been arrested.

The protesters marched down San Salvador's main street, holding signs and chanting "real clowns are not criminals".
