Honduras: Nearly 44 People Killed in Aguan

Tegucigalpa - The conflict unleashed in Honduras'' Bajo Aguan caused the death of nearly 44 people, a figure that can be higher in accordance with human rights champions and peasants, El Heraldo newspaper noted.

According to El Heraldo newspaper unofficial figure, nearly 20 peasants, 15 security guards, 2 policemen, a soldier, 5 painters and a judge died during one of the bloodiest clashes of the agricultural history in Honduras.

These and other crimes have gone unpunished, so the members of the Association of Judges and Magistrates requested Minister of Security, Pompeyo Bonilla, to provide responses related to the crimes.

A tense atmosphere prevails in Bajo Aguan due to the presence of police and military forces, whose members have been accused several times of mistreating and arresting children.

According to peasants of the region, Bajo Aguan seems to be "a war zone" due to the presence of repressive officers, sent by the government several months ago, la Prensa newspaper reported.
