Honduras election: Police refuse to confront protesters

Despite a nationwide curfew, ongoing demonstrations have called for President Juan Orlando Hernandez to step down, and now elite 'Cobra' police officers are refusing to challenge the protesters.

The ongoing demonstrations continue to call for Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez to step down, and for the National Elections Commission to finalize an announcement.

Honduran elite police, known as "Cobras", are now refusing to confront the protesters and are demanding an end to the crisis.

With Honduran cities reporting food and fuel shortages due to the protests, there are worries that the political crisis may be getting worse.
