Marchers call for end to violence

From Times Wire Reports

About 30,000 Hondurans wearing white and waving handkerchiefs marched in the northern city of San Pedro Sula to condemn a bloody crime wave fueled by violence between rival drug gangs.

"We want peace, we want peace!" shouted the marchers who took to the streets of the country's second-largest city, home to drug traffickers fighting to control routes of Colombian cocaine bound for the United States.

Some marchers carried photographs of relatives killed in the violence.
