The trial of an alleged mastermind behind the 2016 murder of award-winning environmentalist Berta Cáceres began in Honduras on Tuesday.

Cáceres, a winner of the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize, was shot dead in her La Esperanza home by armed intruders five years ago. Her Mexican friend Gustavo Castro was also shot but played dead and survived. EFE-EPA
