At least 10 people have been killed in a clash between rival drug gangs in Honduras, the country's deputy defence minister says.

The shootout happened in La Mosquitia, a remote region on Honduras' Atlantic coast.

The area is the main transit route for cocaine being transported from South America to the United States.
