Honduras lifts curfew in some areas after vote dispute

Honduras suspended its nighttime curfew in some parts after the authorities said it did not pose a risk to public order.

The government had suspended some rights to free movement last week when protests erupted over irregularities in the November presidential vote.

Earlier, eight Latin American governments applauded President Juan Orlando Hernandez’s willingness to a review of the disputed vote that has plunged the country into a political crisis.

Late Tuesday, Hernandez called for the Supreme Electoral Tribunal to re-examine all the votes, saying that “the people deserve respect”.
