Four students, including one 13 year old were assassinated last week in Honduras. They were part of mass protests of high school students in the country at the moment, both against the lengthening of the school day and the lack of resources in schools. Lengthening of the school day has serious consequences for low income students who cannot afford private transport in a country where the security situation is so precarious. Between 2010 and 2014, 756 students have been assassinated, including primary school children. As students were on the streets demanding to be heard, they were attacked by police wielding batons and tear gas. 13 students were arrested including seven under 18.
