The incumbent president (Juan Orlando Hernández) is claiming victory in the November 26, 2017 election. The people disagree. There have been mass protests claiming fraud. Demonstrators across the country of 8 million people have been met by state violence, resulting in severe human rights violations, including at least 30 killed, many more injured, and hundreds arrested—many of them detained in military posts. The president has ordered a state of siege and nighttime curfew.
