Honduran authorities grapple with extortion

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Honduran authorities recently mounted a new operation aimed at dismantling extortion rackets, suggesting a growing concern within the government about the crime's devastating impact on society and the economy.

The day before the most recent raids, local media outlets reported that members of the transportation industry, who have been particularly affected by extortion, threatened a national strike to protest a perceived lack of government attention to the issue.
