Gunmen burst into the home of Guyana's agriculture minister early Saturday and fatally shot him along with two relatives and a security guard, authorities said.

A government spokesman said it appeared to be a political assassination. Police said robbery was a possible motive, and they were also investigating whether drug trafficking or criminal gangs were involved.

Satyadeo Sawh was killed after his family members met the assailants' demands for jewelry and money - giving them $120, his wife said. She was speaking hours after the attack at her house, about six miles east of the capital, Georgetown.

"They still turned around and shot them," said Sattie Sawh. She said she had survived by hiding in the coastal home.

Satyadeo Sawh's body was found lying in a hammock, his wife said.
