At least 14 massacred on football field

October 31, 2010


— A carful of attackers armed with assault rifles drove up to a football field in a poor Honduran neighborhood Saturday and opened fire, killing at least 14 people.

Armando Calidonio, vice minister of security, said the gunmen shot from point-blank range at the victims, who were known to gather there to play football.

Ten were killed at the scene and four died as they were being taken to the hospital. More were wounded — some gravely, Calidonio said, though the number was not clear.

The attackers numbered about five, but police did not have any suspects.

“We still do not know the motive of this tragedy,” Calidonio told reporters.

The coup government has been behind the murders of scores of its opponents over the last year and a half. Could this been a few more to add to the list?
