Syrians with Stolen Passports Headed for US Caught in Honduras

Five Syrians were caught in Honduras last night using fake passports. They were trying to reach the continental United States via Mexico the spokesman said. 

TEGUCIGALPA, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Honduran authorities have detained five Syrian nationals who were trying to reach the United States using stolen Greek passports, but there are no signs of any links to last week's attacks in Paris, police said. The group of Syrian men was held late on Tuesday in the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa on arrival from Costa Rica and they were planning to head to the border with neighboring Guatemala. The passports had been doctored to replace the photographs with those of the Syrians, police said.
