Crime robs 10 percent of Honduras output: World Bank

Thursday, March 29, 2012

A new World Bank report says crime and violence has cost Honduras the equivalent of 10 percent of the country's gross domestic product annually.

Honduras had the highest homicide rate in the world in 2010, with 6,200 killings, or 82.1 murders per 100,000 inhabitants.

Honduras has been hit by a combination of drug trafficking, street gangs and violent crime.
