On May 11, 2012, a passenger boat was traveling on the Patuca river in a remote region in eastern Honduras. The 16 passengers were headed to the village of Ahuas. Right as they were about to dock, they were attacked by DEA agents & Honduran police that were involved in an alleged drug interdiction operation.
This episode describes what happened that night and shares extensive testimony from the survivors and eyewitnesses themselves.
This episode is Part One of a three episode series: The Drug War Cover Up.
