Honduran bishops says authorities must face wave of violence

.- In a statement released this week, the Bishops Conference of Honduras said the recent acts of violence taking place in the country are evidence that young people are becoming victims of an alarming genocide. In a letter signed by Auxiliary Bishop Romulo Emiliani of San Pedro Sula, in northern Honduras, the bishops call on authorities to take immediate actions against the violence, saying society cannot remain in difference.

“To witness this tragedy which is becoming unstoppable and to say that nothing can be done is an anti-Christian and unpatriotic position,” they said.

The bishops agreed that an “alarming deterioration of the awareness of the value of life” is spreading, and that it was not normal that between 1998 and the beginning of 2005 more than 2,630 young people under the age of 23 have been killed.
