Honduran local radio station Radio America Tuesday condemned an intentional fire in one of its stations in Olanchito city, north of the country.

A group of masked people entered the station Monday night and brought under the guard without harming him, said news coordinator Luis Vallejo.

Vallejo said this was the third attack against Radio America since the coup against ousted president Manuel Zelaya on June 28.

Radio America is the second most important news chain in Honduras. A bomb was set in the parking lot of its main office in Tegucigalpa in mid August. In early July, its station in the northwest department of Olancho was damaged by unknown people.

Vallejo said Radio America condemned such attack against it and any other media, because it was a crime against the freedom of press.

Since the coup, radio stations, TV channels and newspapers have been attacked with home-made bombs.

In mid July, three Molotov cocktails exploded in the office of the "El Heraldo" newspaper, and a car distributing the "La Tribuna" daily was set on fire in Olancho department.

The TV channel Canal 36 and Radio Globo were temporarily interrupted due to attacks on their equipment.
