TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) - Honduran police and soldiers raided the homes of a ruling-party mayor suspected of links to drug traffickers, uncovering a collection of luxury vehicles and more than 250 exotic birds, a prosecutor's office spokesman said on Monday.

Authorities on Sunday arrested Arnaldo Urbina Soto, the National Party mayor of Yoro, a city 68 miles (110 km) north of the capital Tegucigalpa, said a police source involved in the investigation. The arrest followed the raid on 10 properties in the Yoro area linked to Urbina Soto, the source said.
