Honduras for Sunday Telegraph
Just back from a short four day trip to Honduras for the Sunday Telegraph. It was for a story about the gangs of San Pedro, the city with the highest murder rate in the country with the highest murder rate in the world. We went out on a patrol with the army who now patrol the streets since the local police were unable to cope with the high level of violence. We also visited a coffee farm sponsored by Kenco that try to help kids from the barrio's find an alternative to a life in the gangs.
