A transgender woman activist who openly supported the LGBTQ community in Honduras has been killed by unidentified gunmen on a motorcycle on Thursday in the town of Morocelí, in the eastern province of El Paraíso. The police say she had dropped some friends off and was leaving their house, talking on a cellphone, when she was gunned down. Police spokesman Miguel Carranza said: “The motive behind the crime is thought to be a personal issue with her enemies.” The 42-year-old victim, Melissa Núñez, had reportedly spent over two decades in the United States and only returned to her country in November last year after she was deported from the US.
