Clashes erupted with police on the streets of Tegucigalpa on Tuesday, as thousands of protesters took to the streets to demand the resignation of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez.
Footage shows protesters and police hurling tear gas canisters at one another. Some protesters were seen washing their eyes out due to exposure from the tear gas. Three downtown businesses reportedly caught... Еще fire during the clashes.
