Honduran Church officials downplay bullet fired into cardinal's office

Catholic World News - October 15, 2010

Church officials in Honduras are doing their best to downplay the significance of a bullet fired into the office of Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, but admit that the cardinal might move his office to a more secure location.

A bullet shattered the window in the cardinal’s office on Sunday, October 10. Officials of the Tegucigalpa archdiocese delayed an announcement of the shooting, and said that since Cardinal Rodriguez was out of the country at the time it occurred, it could not be classified as an assassination attempt. They did note, however, that the cardinal has been threatened on previous occasions, and tighter security might be warranted.
