Six dead in Honduran airport massacre
Honduran authorities believe that Friday’s massacre of six people at San Pedro Sula’s international airport was the result of a turf war between organized criminal gangs.
“This was a battle between two delinquent factions”, said Security Secretary Pompeyo Bonilla. He denied that it had anything to do with the recent deaths of nine prisoners in San Pedro Sula’s central prison, but said that investigations are ongoing.
After the ambush a pickup truck, apparently stolen in the coastal town of La Ceiba at the beginning of the month and used as a getaway car, was found burned nearby. Family members claiming the bodies indicated that they are all from La Ceiba.
Authorities said they are analyzing video from airport security cameras and will conduct a “thoroughly professional” investigation.
