Al-Qaida Tip Boosts Security in Honduras

Honduras tightened security at foreign embassies and declared a national terror alert after receiving information that al-Qaida was trying to recruit Hondurans to attack embassies of the United States, Britain, Spain and El Salvador, a government official said Sunday. The heightened security was implemented three days ago after Honduras’ intelligence services received reports of a plan allegedly targeting those countries’ embassies here and abroad, Security Minister Oscar Alvarez said. “We are facing a state of preventative national alert, because our intelligence services report that al-Qaida foreigners have made offers for Hondurans to carry out sabotage both here and abroad,” Alvarez said at a news conference.
