Honduras: President Juan Orlando Hernandez declared election victor

H6 honduras fire

Soldiers and firefighters recover the body of Hilda Hernandez, Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez's sister, and the bodies of the rest of the people who died the day before in the helicopter that crashed in the mountains of Yerbabuena, Rincon de Dolores, Lepaterique municipality, 60 km northwest of Tegucigalpa, on December 17, 2017.

"We send our solidarity and condolences to the president and his family", said former president Manuel Zelaya, who is leading the opposition leftist alliance that has claimed victory in the elections for its candidate, television host Salvador Nasralla.

Hilda Hernandez, 51, was a close advisor to her brother, who is embroiled in political turmoil in the wake of a November 26 presidential election, which remains unresolved.

Nasralla met with OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro and a senior State Department official in Washington on Monday.

In a video posted on Facebook, Nasralla said it was clear there had been fraud "before, during and after" the election, calling the tribunal's decision a "desperate move".

Apple To Release The "Most Powerful Mac Ever Made"

John Creamer, U.S. deputy assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, told Nasralla the State Department was studying both the OAS and European Union reports and did not speak in favor of or against new elections, Tony Garcia, an adviser to the candidate present in the meeting, told Reuters.

Nasralla leads a center-left coalition that seemed headed for a surprise upset in the hours after the election, but results suddenly stopped coming in.

TV broadcast images of protesters setting up flaming barricades and blocking roads in cities around the country.

Honduras has been roiled by political instability and violent protests since the election.

That prompted national protests, in which 22 people were killed, including two police officers, according to data tallied by the Committee of Detained Disappeared Persons in Honduras.
