Murder of Honduran Activist Prompts US Congress to Question Aide Following the murder of Honduran activist Berta Caceres, who was shot dead in her home last month, 60 members of the U.S. Congress are questioning a $750 million aid package designated for parts of Central America, including Honduras. The lawmakers asked in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry that some aid be withheld pending an independent investigation of her death. Caceres was internationally known for her work opposing a hydroelectric dam in a rural part of Honduras, and some suspect that the military and police were complicit in her murder, and that the Honduran government is now involved in a cover-up.
