The ProtectDefenders.eu monthly digest of alerts reports on the intensification of attacks against HRDs in Honduras, in a series of events seen as part of a systematic campaign of public, verbal and physical attacks against human rights defenders and journalists in the country.
The digest also reports on the killings of human rights defender Afzal Kohistani in Pakistan. Kohistani shot dead for seeking justice for 'honour killings' in the country.
