Honduras protesters stage biggest march yet to demand president resign| The Guardian

A coalition of opposition political groups is demanding an independent probe into a $200m corruption scandal at the Honduran Institute of Social Security, where companies, some formed by institute officials, overcharged for services. The opposition groups want an independent prosecutorial team staffed by foreigners, similar to a United Nations-backed commission that has led corruption probes in neighboring Guatemala. Hernandez has admitted his 2013 presidential campaign took $150,000 from firms linked to the scandal, but said that he and his party did not know where the money was from.
