Japan's Honda Motor Co has resumed production at automobile and motorcycle plants in the United States and other countries after they were hit by a suspected cyber attack this week, a spokesman said on Friday. The suspected attack comes less than a month after Honda reopened its North American vehicle assembly plants, following the closure of factories in late March to comply with coronavirus-related, shelter-at-home rules in the United States and Canada.
