Bus clowns protest at passenger murder


News organizations around the world picked up the story of clowns in El Salvador who marched to protest the killing of a bus passenger by "imposter clowns." From the BBC:
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".
