Honduras cocaine seizures increase

Honduras enforcement agencies seized 2,241kg of cocaine between January and July 2020 compared with 2,218kg seized through all of 2019. The seizures have been concentrated in the jungle region of La Mosquita, indicating that Honduras’ Caribbean coast is being used as a corridor for cocaine trafficking to the US. Much of Honduras’ cocaine production occurs in jungle areas that are subject to deforestation by drug traffickers building cultivation sites, runways and processing plants.
