First Honduras cocaine laboratory discovered

Honduran police have for the first time uncovered a cocaine lab in the country.

Officers found an installation full of barrels of chemicals and tools used to process the drug in a mountainous area north of the capital, Tegucigalpa.

Security Minister Oscar Alvarez said the “first rate” facility was probably being run by Mexican gangs.

The discovery could indicate that Mexican cartels, who are increasingly moving into Central America, are also making cocaine themselves.
