US shares intelligence with Honduras but not other aid

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

The United States has resumed sharing radar intelligence with Honduras after a four-month suspension, reviving an international effort to stop drug planes from using the tiny Central American country as a way station for cocaine smuggling to the United States.

Other forms of security cooperation between the United States and Honduras are still suspended. About $50 million due to be assigned to antidrug and security efforts is being withheld by Democrats in Congress over concerns about American involvement in deadly drug raids this year, and accusations of death squad involvement by senior Honduran police officials.
