Honduras: U.S. Won't Send Radar Data To Honduras In Dispute

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 07:00:00 GMT

Ledger-Enquirer, 01 Apr 2014 - MEXICO CITY - The U.S. government has ceased providing Honduras with radar tracking information out of concern that a new policy allowing its forces to shoot down aircraft suspected of hauling narcotics does not have enough safeguards to prevent error. A statement from the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa distributed Tuesday said other U.S.-financed counternarcotics programs would not be affected, but that Washington already has ceased sharing certain types of information and assistance with Honduras.

Honduras: U.S. Rethinks A Drug War After Deaths In Honduras

Sat, 13 Oct 2012 07:00:00 GMT

New York Times, 13 Oct 2012 - TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras - The Honduran Air Force pilot did not know what to do. It was the dead of night, and he was chasing a small, suspected drug plane at a dangerously low altitude, just a few hundred feet above the Caribbean. He fired warning shots, but instead of landing, the plane flew lower and closer to the sea. "So the pilot made a decision, thinking it was the best thing to do," said Arturo Corrales, Honduras's foreign minister, one of several officials to give the first detailed account of the episode. "He shot down the plane."

Honduras: DEA Agent Kills Suspected Trafficker In Honduras

Mon, 25 Jun 2012 07:00:00 GMT

Seattle Times, 25 Jun 2012 - WASHINGTON - A U.S. agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration shot a man to death in Honduras during a raid on a drug smuggling operation early Saturday, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Honduras said on Sunday. The man who was killed had been reaching for his weapon, the official said, and the U.S. agent fired in self-defense. The shooting brought further attention to the growing U.S. involvement in counternarcotics operations in Central America. Commando style squads of DEA agents have been working with local security forces in several countries and have been present at several firefights in Honduras in which people died in the past 15 months.

Honduras: DEA's Agents Join Hondurans In Drug Battles

Thu, 17 May 2012 07:00:00 GMT

New York Times, 17 May 2012 - WASHINGTON - A commando-style squad of Drug Enforcement Administration agents accompanied the Honduran counternarcotics police during two firefights with cocaine smugglers in the jungles of the Central American country this month, according to officials in both countries who were briefed on the matter. One of the fights, which occurred last week, left as many as four people dead and has set off a backlash against the American presence there. It remains unclear whether the D.E.A. agents took part in the shooting during either episode, the first in the early hours of May 6 and the second early last Friday. In an initial account of the second episode, the Honduran government told local reporters that two drug traffickers had been killed and a large shipment of cocaine seized; he did not mention any American involvement. Several American officials said the D.E.A. agents did not return fire during the encounter.
