Honduran slain for his laptop

Tegucigalpa, Nov 8, 2012 (EFE via COMTEX) -- An aspiring journalist was killed here Thursday when he resisted assailants who wanted to take his laptop computer, Honduran police said.

Angel Edgardo Lopez, 35, was slain in the downtown Tegucigalpa neighborhood of La Hoya.

The assailants were apparently riding on motorcycles, a police officer told reporters.

Lopez, a journalist student, was a member of the Honduras Biblical Society and worked for several years at Estereo Luz radio in Tegucigalpa.

Honduras's 2011 homicide rate of 92 murders per 100,000 people was one of the highest in the world, a recent U.N. report said.

About 18 violent deaths occur in the Central American country daily, according to figures compiled by the National Police and human rights groups. EFE gr/dr
