Violent clashes broke out between riot police and protesters demanding the resignation of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez in the capital Tegucigalpa on Wednesday.

Riot police used water cannon and tear gas in an attempt to clear a group of demonstrators from a road. The protesters responded by throwing stones and other projectiles.

The protests follow allegations from US prosecutors that Hernandez used money from drug traffickers to fund his 2013 presidential campaign. Hernandez reportedly dismissed the allegations as an attempted smear campaign against him by political opponents and drug gangs he targeted.
