“Honduras”

Tucked between Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala, Honduras spans across the entire slice of central America's region, touching both the Carribean Sea and the North Pacific Ocean. The country has a population of just 9 million citizens and has been said to be the most underdeveloped nation in the region. 

Honduras was dominated by the military until the 1980s, working closely with the U.S. to repress any revolutionary movements that might otherwise spark change. The country has suffered from gang violence, corruption and ongoing drug wars for decades, making it commonplace for citizens to migrate to the US and other countries in search of a better, safer life. 

The media in Honduras is largely owned by private individuals with political bias and press freedom is under threat in the country, with journalists being under danger for reporting freely.
