Authorities in Honduras have announced a curfew and suspended some constitutional rights to allow security forces to contain protests and unrest over a disputed election.
Two candidates in the country’s election have declared themselves winner and the ballot count is entering its sixth day.

Honduras’ electoral court had finished counting nearly ninety-five percent of the vote boxes from last Sunday’s presidential election by late Friday and said it would conduct a hand count of one thousand and thirty-one other boxes that presented inconsistencies.

Incumbent President Juan Orlando Hernandez held a lead of more than forty-six thousand votes over challenger Salvador Nasralla before the last-stage count.

It was not immediately clear how many votes could be at play in the uncounted boxes.
