103 gangbangers killed in suspicious prison fire
New York Times |
"An early-morning fire, apparently caused by an electrical short circuit, killed more than 100 gang members in a severely overcrowded prison in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the authorities said Monday. It was the second major prison disaster in Honduras in 13 months. In April 2003, 68 people died in a ramshackle jail at El Porvenir, on Honduras's north coast. An independent investigation concluded that 51 of the dead at El Porvenir had been executed - shot, stabbed, beaten or burned to death... In both disasters, almost all of the dead were members of the Mara, a violent youth gang that has created a continuing law enforcement crisis in Honduras... A recent United States State Department report said that the response to the Maras in Honduras has included vigilante justice and 'death squads' formed by businessmen and former soldiers."
