Supporters of presidential candidate Salvador Nasralla hold a Honduran flag as they block a road in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Monday. President Juan Orlando Hernandez has been declared the winner of Honduras’ disputed election, but that isn’t quelling unrest from weeks of uncertainty as his main challenger calls for more protests Monday and vows to take his claims of fraud to the OAS.

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernandez called on the country’s leaders Tuesday to accept his disputed re-election and bring peace to the divided country, even as his challenger said he would once again challenge the official result.
