Protests against Hon­duran leader turn vi­o­lent

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - WORLD -

Protests against the re-elec­tion of Hon­duran Pres­i­dent Juan Or­lando Her­nan­dez turned vi­o­lent Fri­day with se­cu­rity forces fir­ing tear gas and some marchers break­ing win­dows and set­ting fires. Video from the protests showed for­mer Pres­i­dent Manuel Ze­laya be­ing shoved by mil­i­tary po­lice. Ze­laya and de­feated pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Sal­vador Nas­ralla also suf­fered the ef­fects of tear gas. Above, a sup­porter of Nas­ralla shat­tered a win­dow dur­ing clashes with mil­i­tary po­lice near the pres­i­den­tial house in Tegu­ci­galpa, Hon­duras.
