​Honduras detains 5 Syrians headed to U.S. with stolen Greek passports

TEGUCIGALPA -- Five Syrian nationals who were trying to reach the United States using stolen Greek passports have been detained in Honduras, but there are no signs of any links to last week's attacks in Paris, police said, according to Reuters.

Police said the Syrian men were taken into custody late Tuesday in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, after arriving from Costa Rica, and had been planning to head to the border with neighboring Guatemala. The passports had been doctored to replace the photographs.
