The death of Keyla Martínez, 26, is being treated as a murder – she is one of 29 women killed in the country so far this year

Keyla Martínez screamed for help from inside the police cell, but no one came to save her.

Martínez, a 26-year-old trainee nurse from La Esperanza, western Honduras, died in police custody last weekend after being detained for breaching a coronavirus curfew.
