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.
