Honduras moves to end violence at football games

Between 2003 and 2019, at least 50 people have been killed in match-related crimes in Honduras

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez recently announced the creation of a mixed government-private sector commission to help stamp out violence at football matches in the country.

The move comes after four football fans were killed last month, and several players injured, in violent pre-match clashes between supporters of rival teams.

Between 2003 and 2019, at least 50 people have been killed in match-related crimes in Honduras, according to national Human Rights Commissioner Roberto Herrera.
