Xiomara Castro, Honduras' defeated leftist presidential candidate and wife of ousted former leader Manuel Zelaya, led thousands of supporters onto the streets of Tegucigalpa on Sunday to protest an election result she has called fraudulent. According to the country's election tribunal, the ruling National Party's Juan Hernandez, who is head of Congress, won last week's election with 36.8 percent of votes. The demonstration by a crowd estimated at several thousand people passed off peacefully, which analysts said offered some hope for political stability.
