US officials at odds over $55 million aid for Honduras

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

The US State Department appears headed for a showdown with Congress over the department’s decision to approve more than $50 million in aid for Honduras despite the Central American nation’s poor human rights record.

The money is part of a $750-million aid package for Central America’s so-called Northern Triangle — Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala — allocated under an Obama administration initiative.
