In Honduras, at least one protester was killed and scores injured as police fired tear gas and charged demonstrators outside the country’s electoral commission in the capital, Tegucigalpa. The protests came as the commission continued its delay in declaring a winner in Sunday’s election, after early returns showed progressive candidate Salvador Nasralla with a significant lead. On Thursday, the commission said U.S.-backed incumbent President Juan Orlando Hernández had edged ahead of Nasralla with over 90 percent of votes counted—prompting Nasralla and his supporters to accuse the electoral commission of vote-rigging.
