TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) - Amnesty International and other non-governmental organizations on Tuesday criticized the official investigation into the murder of an environmental rights activist in Honduras, urging foreign experts to intervene. Five days after Berta Caceres was shot and killed in her home, the police have not presented an official hypothesis and are still considering labeling the murder a common crime, to the consternation of family and friends who believe the death was tied to her fight against large-scale hydroelectric plants and mines. "Amnesty International demands that this investigation be done with the help of independent forensic experts and with an international commission that will guarantee its impartiality," Erika Guevara, Amnesty's Americas director, said at a press conference with other local NGOs. Caceres, who had received death threats, won the Goldman Environmental Prize last year for her struggle to prevent the construction of a $50 million dam that threatened to displace hundreds of indigenous people. "We don't have confidence in the government's investigations and its security forces," Olivia Zuniga, Caceres's daughter, told Reuters. "They were the (same) officials that awarded the concession for the dam that my mother fought against." The police have released the only suspect arrested after the murder, Caceres's former partner and colleague, a police source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Alabama won't seek another lethal injection date for an inmate whose September execution had been halted because of problems establishing an intravenous line, according to the terms of a settlement agreement approved on Monday. The state agreed to never use lethal injection again as an execution method to put Alan Eugene Miller to death. Any future effort to execute him will be done by nitrogen hypoxia, an execution method authorized in Alabama but that has never been used to carry out a death sentence in the US.
