A woman cries in front of a police officer as her shack is dismantled in Tegucigalpa on Oct. 27.

Agence France Presse reports: 

Human rights organizations described as inhumane the eviction of 120 families and the destruction by court order of 52 houses on El Estiquin hill, on the southern outskirts of the Honduran capital. The evicted people, mostly low-income single mothers, demanded that President Porfirio Lobo provide them with a decent place to live.
