About 600 people armed with sticks, stones and machetes kill Giorgio Scanu, who they accused of having murdered a homeless man
Two crimes in a row shock Honduras, where the lack of action by the security forces has led the inhabitants of a town to take justice into their own hands. It happened on Thursday in the community of Santa Ana de Yusguare, in the southern department of Choluteca. About 600 people armed with sticks, stones and machetes killed Giorgio Scanu, a 65-year-old former Italian footballer who has settled in the Central American country for two decades, after accusing him of the murder of Juan de Dios Flores, an 80-year-old homeless. that he suffered from mental problems. The Honduran Police have arrested five people involved in the lynching and do not rule out that the number will increase.
