Tegucigalpa, Dec 7 (EFE).- A son of Honduras' former ambassador to the Organization of American States, Carlos Sosa Coello, was fatally shot Friday, his father said.

"We Hondurans experience this scourge every day," the diplomat told reporters, confirming that Carlos Alejandro Sosa Chavez, 32, was murdered.

Sosa Chavez, who leaves behind a wife and a 6-month-old daughter, was found dead on a street near El Trapiche, a residential area in Tegucigalpa.

The victim and his family were due to leave soon for a vacation in France, Sosa Coello said.

Honduras's 2011 homicide rate of 92 murders per 100,000 people was one of the highest in the world, U.N. experts said in a recent report.

About 18 violent deaths occur in the Central American country daily, according to figures compiled by the National Police and human rights groups.
