Hondurans Pack Polling Places To Vote For President

Originally published on Sun November 24, 2013 4:52 pm

Hondurans are going to the polls Sunday to elect a new president. Crime, gangs and drug cartel violence have made Honduras the most dangerous country, of those not at war, in the world. If that weren't enough to compel voters, Honduras's economy is nearly bankrupt and many live in poverty. Host Arun Rath talks to NPR's Carrie Kahn, who's been monitoring voting in the country's capital.
