Honduras declares state of emergency over post-vote violence

AFP  |  Tegucigalpa 

The Honduran declared a state of emergency late last night that restricts free movement in an attempt to stop violent demonstrations across the country triggered by claims of presidential fraud.

The decree approved by President Juan Orlando Hernandez, who is seeking re-despite a constitutional ban on a second term, "restricts the free movement of people for a period of 10 days ... between 6:00 pm and 06:00 am the following day," coordinator Jorge Ramon Hernandez Alcerro said.
