An 80-year-old Canadian and his partner have died after what local media call a homophobic attack in their home in Honduras. Local reports say they were shot and stabbed by attackers in the community of Tela on the Caribbean coast. The Canadian, identified in local media reports as Gerard Argiud, died hours after the attack, the reports say. Argiud's Honduran partner, identified as Jorge Sarmiento, 42, was described in local media reports as a prominent member of the local LBGT community.
