    Activists expressed outrage on Sunday at the killing of an indigenous “guardian of the forest” in Brazil's Amazon and called on the government to thwart illegal loggers in the region. Paulo Paulino Guajajara and another tribesman, Laercio Guajajara, were ambushed by loggers late Friday as they patrolled the Arariboia territory in the northeastern state of Maranhao.
