    Berta Cáceres court papers show murder suspects’ links to US-trained elite troops

    The Honduran environmental activist’s killing a year ago bears the hallmarks of a ‘well-planned operation designed by military intelligence’ says legal source

    Leaked court documents raise concerns that the murder of the Honduran environmentalist Berta Cáceres was an extrajudicial killing planned by military intelligence specialists linked to the country’s US–trained special forces, a Guardian investigation can reveal.

    Cáceres was shot dead a year ago while supposedly under state protection after receiving death threats over her opposition to a hydroelectric dam.

    . . .

    The murder of Cáceres, winner of the prestigious Goldman environmental prize in 2015, prompted international outcry and calls for the US to revoke military aid to Honduras, a key ally in its war on drugs.

    Eight men have been arrested in connection with the murder, including one serving and two retired military officers.

    2. And thanks to $hillary also for the illegal coup to overthrow the duly

    elected president and install a right wing oligarchy.

      3. +100. And that didn't get any MSM coverage that I noticed. What a

      screwed up world we live in.  I bet 90% of the population doesn’t even know there *was* a coup in Honduras, or even that the government changed hands.

      Sometimes one just gets tired of living in a different reality from other people.  Other people who will tell you *you’re* the uninformed ignorant one if you try to talk about anything that matters.
