View on the Pragda STREAM site

Every year, dozens of public transportation and taxi drivers are murdered in Honduras – the world's most dangerous country – turning the entire sector into a struggle for survival. The ‘war tax’ is a toll that gangs demand from drivers to work in their territory. Whoever refuses to pay it will pay it with his life or that of a close relative. Who would work in this terrifying business, and at what cost?
