Reporting in Honduras is incredibly dangerous, especially on topics of crime and politics. Many are threatened, and a significant number have been murdered. From 2003 to 2014, 51 were murdered, and all but two cases remained in impunity. At least seven media workers were murdered in 2015. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), Council on Hemispheric Affairs (COHA), DOHA Centre for Media Freedom, Freedom House, International Press Institute (IPI), and Reporters without Borders (RSF) monitor such events, to the extent they are reported.


UNAH Violence Observatory: http://iudpas.org has annual reports for selected departments and the nation.
