Honduras marches turn violent in anger over last year's election

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Labor Day marches in Honduras turned violent on Tuesday as anti-riot police used tear gas and water cannons to break up rock-hurling protesters venting their anger at what many decry as a fraudulent presidential election late last year.

Heated protests played out across at least three Honduran cities, including the capital, where one police officer was injured in the confrontation, according to Security Ministry spokesman Jair Meza.
