Q24N (Prensa Latina) Around 175,000 Hondurans have been displaced by violence recently in this country, said today the representative of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Andres Celis.

As part of admitting the problem, the Honduran Government fostered the shaping of the Inter-institution Commission for the protection of people forced to abandon their homes, the official said.

The UNHCR official for Public Information and Communication, Francesca Fontanini asserted that many of the internal displaced people come from rural areas and go to cities.

These people could become asylum applicants in the future, or simply decide to emigrate, he said.

Faced with the increase of violent actions against people, the police and security forces intensified their operations in communities to neutralize and capture members of criminal groups, such as the so-called maras.

According to Honduran authorities, there are 13 average daily murders as a consequence of that scourge in this country, related to extortions and drug selling among other evils.
