Honduras economy on brink of collapse

Government in need of funds, with $6bn of foreign debt and internal debt tripling in last three years.

Economists say Honduras is on the brink of economic collapse.

Gang-related violence is also making it one of the most dangerous places in the world. The authorities are under increasing pressure to give residents a sense of security.

Desperate for funds, the government has now passed a controversial law allowing the privatisation of land – leading to protests from people indigenous to the area.
