From EL FARO ENGLISH: Honduras Pivots Left in Bid to Rebuild Country
Record participation and a 20-point lead for Xiomara Castro defeated fears of a stolen election based on violence during the campaign and past fraud.

Outraged in Honduras: The Paradigm of a New Social Movement
You can read the Spanish version here. Honduras has never been well-known, rather simply thought of as a small Third World country and not much more than a name on a world map.
