    Families of 350 inmates killed in a prison fire in Honduras have been mourning the loss of their loved ones.

    The disaster, which took place in Comayagua on February 14, has drawn international attention to the justice system and prisoner conditions in Honduras.

    The country's 24 jails are all considered overcrowded, underfunded and chronically corrupt.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from Marcala.
