Hello and welcome to the details of Gang kills four police in operation to free leader in Honduras and now with the details
TEGUCIGALPA, Feb 14 — Armed men killed four police officers and wounded another four as they freed a leader of the notorious MS-13 gang from a court in Honduras, authorities said.
Around 20 gang members opened fire yesterday outside a court in El Progreso, around 140km north of the capital Tegucigalpa, the security ministry said in a statement released later that day.
During the attack, Alexander Mendoza, known by his alias “Porkys,” was able to escape.
He had been in prison since December 2015 and was serving a 20-year sentence for murdering two prosecutors.
The security ministry offered a reward of one million lempiras (RM160,000) “to the person who provides conclusive information leading to the immediate recapture” of Mendoza, who was described as “a dangerous criminal.”
MS-13, also known as Mara Salvatrucha, alongside other gangs such as Barrio 18 and drug traffickers have turned Honduras into one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
Its 2019 murder rate of 44 per 100,000 inhabitants was one of the highest in the world and is partly responsible for the waves of migrants fleeing towards the United States in search of a better life. — AFP
