By Dialogo August 01, 2011 On 28 July, Honduran and U.S. authorities recovered 2.5 tons from inside a sunken drug submarine in the Central American country’s Caribbean waters, a high-ranking Honduran military leader said. The semi-submersible vessel, which is estimated to still hold another 2.5 tons of drugs, was scuttled on 13 July by its four crew members – three Colombians and one Honduran – when they were intercepted by Honduran coast guard agents. “We’ve recovered 2.5 tons of cocaine, and we estimate that there is an equal amount still in the vessel,” said the head of the Joint General Staff of the Honduran Armed Forces, Gen. René Osorio. Honduras, which has Atlantic and Pacific coasts, is used by Mexican and Colombian cartels for shipping cocaine from South America to the United States. The presence in Honduras of the Mexican cartels, which have extended their operations into Central America as a result of the war launched against them in their own country, is exacerbating local violence due to territorial disputes between gangs, according to the authorities.
Emmanuel Eboue has signed for Sunderland on a short-term deal.The former Ivory Coast full back has been training with the club over the past few weeks and will stay until the end of the season.The 32-year-old signed for Arsenal in 2004 and played in a Champions League final in 2006. After his stay in London, he signed for Galatasaray but his contract was not renewed after three seasons.”When I came here for the first time it felt like I’d been here already so I’m very happy to sign for the club,” Eboue told Sunderland’s website. “I was dreaming about it [returning to the Premier League] and thinking about it when I was in Turkey because I played here before, so I thank god, my new team-mates and also the staff and everybody else who took me in like a son.”I’ve trained with the team for almost one month and, as I said, from my first day I’ve felt very good; I’ve also known the club for a long time and I know Jermain [Defoe], John [O’Shea] and Catts, as well as the French players, so it is like a family here.”– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
