The DEA is shaking up the drug war in Central America following two lethal DEA-related shootings of suspected Honduras drug smugglers, The Global Post reports [2].

The shooting deaths of trafficking suspects on June 23 and July 3 is part of a new DEA mission called “Operation Anvil” in which U.S. agents team up with Honduran anti-drug forces to combat narcotic trafficking.

As a result of the crackdown, drug traffickers are shifting smuggling routes, the Global Post reported.

Honduras has become the principle launching pad for loads of U.S.-bound cocaine.
