8 Killed in Deadly Attack on Honduras Bus

Eight people are dead after gunmen attacked a passenger bus in Honduras late Thursday.

The attack happened in eastern Honduras as the bus was traveling from the city of Catacamas to the city of Juticalpa. The dead include four women and four children. Three other people were wounded in the attack.

Security Ministry spokesman Leonel Sauceda told reporters the attack appeared to be directed at one or two people on board the vehicle. The assailants opened fire after they failed to force the driver of the vehicle pull off the road.
