Honduras jails US sex criminals

A court in Honduras has sentenced three United States men to between four and ten years jail for their part in a child prostitution ring.

The three were arrested last April in a nightclub in the northern city of San Pedro Sula where eight teenage girls were working as prostitutes.

Correspondents say Central American countries have seen a growth in so-called sex tourism in recent years following crackdowns on child prostitution in South East Asia.
