The auxiliary bishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, confirmed that a bullet fragment was found on Oct. 11 in an office belonging to Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga but said the Tegucigalpa prelate was never in danger. Auxiliary Bishop Darwin Andino Ramírez said that Cardinal Rodríguez was not working in the office, which is part of the archdiocesan headquarters in the Honduran capital. Bishop Andino said on Oct. 15 that it was unknown who was responsible, but that a gunshot shattered a window in the office. The discovery underscores the lingering political tensions in Honduras and the controversial role of the Catholic Church in the aftermath of a coup on June 28, 2009, that removed President Manuel Zelaya from office. The coup badly divided Honduran society and the church.
