Honduras: Priest Denounces Police Attack

Father Marco Aurelio Lorenzo, a Catholic priest, has denounced a police attack on December 26, 2011, “when he and two brothers […] stopped along the highway to rest. […] Eight police officers set on them and beat them, badly enough that they then took them to the hospital,” Honduras Culture and Politics reports. The Committee for Relatives of the Detained and Disappeared in Honduras (Cofadeh) condemns the attack and the police's “systematic practice of attacking [Honduran] citizens.”
