HRW: Attacks Increasing Against Honduran Coup Opponents

HeadlineMar 04, 2010

In Honduras, Human Rights Watch is warning of ongoing attacks against opponents of the coup that overthrew then-President Manuel Zelaya last year. On Wednesday, Human Rights Watch said at least three people have been killed and another eight jailed in what appear to be politically motivated attacks over the past month. The majority of victims were members of the National Popular Resistance Front, which opposed the coup and boycotted the vote that elected Honduran President Porfirio Lobo.
