Teenagers among recent murdered in Honduras

The bodies of four "young men" were found before dawn on 27 November near the National Stadium in northern Tegucicalpa, hours after they were kidnapped from hostels in the district of Comayagüela north of the city, the daily El Heraldo reported. The victims were apparently strangled to death; one was 14 years old. They were among seven individuals kidnapped by a group of men, some wearing police uniforms. The three other youngsters remained unfound. Police were investigating to determine whether or not the incident was related to the killing of three youngsters in Comayagüela a week before. El Heraldo reported at least eight other violent deaths around Honduras during 21-27 November, including: a Cuban national shot dead outside a mechanical workshop on 26 November near the northern town of El Progreso; a land activist from the MARCA association, shot at the bus station on 25 November in the northern port of Trujillo and three 17 year-old boys stabbed to death in separate incidents in Comayagüela on 24 November, and in the northern port of Cortés on 22 November.
