Honduras says plot to kill president was foiled

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Honduran security forces foiled an international plan last year by drug traffickers to assassinate President Juan Hernández after he launched a crackdown on organized crime, the government said.

Security ministry spokesman Leonel Sauceda said the plot hatched by Colombian, Mexican, Honduran and Guatemalan gangsters was to kill Hernández upon his arrival at the airport of the town of Gracias, in western Honduras, between Sept. 21-22.
