Hondurans crushed by coffee sacks

`Six workers in Honduras were crushed to death by sacks of coffee beans unleashed when a wall in a warehouse gave way, rescue officials said.

The men were young seasonal workers at a coffee farm in Villanueva in the north of the Central American nation.

Officials said the wall collapse caused an overhead storeroom to come down, burying the men under around 10 tons of coffee beans.’
