(Latin Post) Six Americans imprisoned for more than a month in Honduras have been freed, CNN reports.
The group was detained in May on suspicion of smuggling weapons into the country when Honduran officials boarded their ship and found two handguns, two shotguns and a semiautomatic rifle, news reports say.
Ship captain Robert Mayne, speaking from his prison cell, told CNN the weapons were to protect the crew against the possibility of pirates at sea.

Now the Americans have been freed after a month and a half. A U.S. congressman who had been writing letters and lobbying for their release went to the Central American country and told CNN they'd been freed.
