    Guatemalans have been celebrating the cleansing ritual of La Quema del Diablo, or "burning the devil".

    Thousands of people set fire to effigies of Satan in a ritual to get rid of bad luck that dates back to colonial times.

    Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports from the city of Antigua, in the country's central highlands.
