Honduras: War on Children
Reporter Jenny Kleeman and producer George Waldrum travel to Honduras, the tiny country in Central America with a population of seven million people -half of whom are under the age of 18.
Only 40 per cent of children finish primary school. The fathers are often away in America working illegally, and thousands of kids are left to fend for themselves on the streets, scavenging on rubbish dumps and sniffing glue and paint thinner. As a result, a war has broken out between adults and children, with police death squads allegedly killing children like vermin.
“Brutality on a massive scale, and suitably powerful viewing”
