HONDURAS / USA : Protests Flare Over Suspect DEA Helicopter Killings.


     The USA's drug agency is under attack for the deaths of 4 people...including 2 pregnant women...on the Patuca river Friday.
     Protesters even burned some government offices...and are demanding that the DEA leave the region.
     Officials say that a DEA-owned helicopter flown by Honduran police returned shots hovering over the river...only after being fired upon by some smugglers.
     Local officials claim the dead were innocent fishermen caught in the crossfire.
