HRN Journalist Attacked

Honduran radio journalist, Veronica Caceres of HRN, was attacked today in the facilities of the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH) by alleged members of the National Front of Popular Resistance, [Frente Nacional de Resistencia Popular (FNRP)].

“I was assaulted, insulted and photographed. They pushed me and threatened me with death,” Ms. Caceres said at the station she works for in Tegucigalpa.

Cáceres blamed the coordinator Juan Barahona because he did nothing to stop his followers from perpetrating the acts of aggression against her. “If something happens to me, the culprit is Juan Barahona, because he did not move a finger to tell his followers not to assault me,” she said.

FNRP supporters of the former President Zelaya protested near college campuses this morning, to show their solidarity with the SITRAUNAH to demand the resignation of the UNAH rector Julieta Castellanos.
