Honduras: 18th journalist killed since 2010

A radio broadcaster has been killed in Sabá, northern Honduras, making him the 18th journalist to be killed in the country since 2010. Fausto Elio Hernández, host of The Voice of the News programme broadcast on local station Radio Alegre, was hacked to death by a machete-wielding attacker on 10 March.

While police have reportedly said the killing is not related to Hernández’s work as a journalist, Honduras has the second-highest murder rate for journalists in Latin America, after Mexico.
