Democracy Now: DEA Confirms Involvement in Deadly Honduras Attack

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency has confirmed its agents were on board a U.S.-owned helicopter with Honduran police officers when four people on a boat were shot and killed. Two of the victims were said to be pregnant women. Officials from both countries say Honduran officers carried out the shooting after the helicopter was shot at first. The victims were reportedly suspected of carrying drugs, but local officials say they were innocent fisherpeople. On Wednesday, Honduran protesters in the Indian Mosquito coast region reacted to killings by burning government offices and demanding the exit of U.S. agents.
