Investors withdraw from deadly dam project in Honduras

Investors are withdrawing all funding from a controversial hydroelectric dam project in Honduras that had been accompanied by the murders of protesters. A number of local people who opposed the dam project at Agua Zarca dam on the Gualcarque river have been killed over the years – allegedly by state-sanctioned military death squads – including famed activist Berta Caceres.
