Hondurans vote for post-coup president

Hondurans vote Sunday for the first time since President Manuel Zelaya was forced out of the country in June, in elections which have divided the Americas.

After a subdued campaign alongside post-coup crisis talks and a string of small bomb attacks, the de facto regime has sought to calm the population and try to legitimize the polls.
