Protesters take to streets amid calls for new election in Honduras

Tuesday, December 19, 2017


Honduras erupted in new street protests Monday after President Juan Orlando Hernandez was officially declared the winner of last month’s bitterly contested presidential vote.

Supporters of challenger Salvador Nasralla clashed with soldiers and blocked highways and roads with burning tires. Banks, some schools and many businesses remained closed in the capital of Tegucigalpa and other cities.
