CHICHICASTE, Guatemala, April 24 (Reuters) - Emergency workers gave up hope on Thursday of rescuing 11 people missing in a landslide in Guatemala that killed at least 12 others.

"There is no chance of finding anyone alive," said fire department spokesman Wilfredo Morales.

At least five of the dead were children.
