A group of Honduran journalists has supported the Inter-American Press Association's (IAPA) condemnation of attacks against independent media in Honduras.

"IAPA encourages Honduran authorities to protect the media and the physical integrity of the journalist who work in Honduras," said a representative of the journalists.

"We will stand with IAPA in demanding the authorities protect press activities and allow the right to inform and be informed," he said.

Last Saturday, unknown assailants threw "molotov cocktails" at the offices of the newspaper El Heraldo, setting fire to the entrance and seriously damaging the building.

One day before, a group of armed people burned a car belonging to La Tribuna media.

Meanwhile, several explosive devices damaged the building of Channel 11,where the offices of El Tiempo media are also located and Radio America, an important AM station, found an unexploded grenade on its premises.

IAPA has condemned the attacks, saying they have been aimed at limiting the work of journalists in Honduras since the June 28 coup.
