Buildings ablaze in Honduras riots

Thursday, May 2, 2019

Riot police and protesters have clashed in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, during protests against planned reforms of the health and education sector.

Hundreds of people had to be evacuated from a number of buildings in the city after they were set alight. The protesters fear that the reforms could lead to mass lay-offs of teachers and doctors, the BBC reports.
