TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — A union leader in Honduras says four farmworkers have been shot to death by assailants in a region torn by a dispute over land.

Farmworkers union vice president Juan Chinchilla says 11 others were wounded when the group was ambushed late Thursday in the town of Trujillo. Chinchilla says the workers were going home from work in several vehicles when they were attacked.
