In news from Latin America, Honduran security forces fired water cannons and tear gas at protesters Thursday in the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa. The protest was led by COPINH, the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras. The leader of COPINH, Berta Cáceres, was assassinated in March. Thursday’s protest came just days after two Honduran campesino leaders were also assassinated.
