1. This courageous man who opposed the unconstitutional coup, illegal kidnapping

of the elected and beloved populist President Zelaya, with the US ambassador Llorens stating in a message to the US that it was contrary to the Honduran constitution, such as it was, had been getting death threats and harassment from the right-wing radicals since they realized he was not going to back down in his position at his job.

More from the article:

National police chief Juan Carlos Bonilla said Barrow's body had been beheaded and the arms legs cut off before it was set ablaze.

Bonilla said four people have been detained in the killing and that there were 10 suspects in the case altogether, including a minor.

"All of them directly participated in Barrow's killing," Bonilla said.

Local media reported that one suspect was being treated as a witness after leading police to the body, but Bonilla wouldn't comment on that.

Heavily armed men kidnapped Barrow on June 24 while he was driving in his truck. Three of his family members were also taken, but were quickly released unharmed.


May the people of Honduras regain the progress they had made before the iron-fisted, greedy oligarchs stole the country.
