The government of Honduras suspended civil liberties Friday in the country's two largest cities in the wake of anti-American riots triggered by the expulsion to the United States of a suspected Honduran drug kingpin. On Friday, mobs of mostly youthful rioters threw stones and set automobiles ablaze in downtown Tegucigalpa, just a few blocks from the pink rotunda of the presidential palace.

Two U.S. Army Blackhawk helicopters carrying American soldiers were put on standby at a military airport near Tegucigalpa. Their mission, if needed, was to pluck about two dozen Americans holed up in the U.S. Embassy here that was surrounded by an anti-American mob. The helicopters, which, like the soldiers, are permanently based in Honduras, never took off. Honduran riot police finally arrived to quell Thursday night's riot, even though they were late by 90 minutes and $4 million in damage.

"The mission is simple," one official declared. "Track down and eliminate all persons involved in the kidnap, torture and murder."
