Honduras holds off presidential vote recount
Electoral workers and members of the electoral tribunal conduct a vote count in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013. Election authorities in Honduras have agreed to recount the votes from the Nov. 24 presidential elections after receiving a fraud complaint from the opposition and now four Honduran tech entrepreneurs, who all have studied abroad and live in the U.S., Honduras and El Salvador, went to Honduras' official election website and downloaded scanned copies of vote tally sheets from polling stations. They then posted the sheets publicly and recruited hundreds of volunteers through social media to help check the results. The green light over the woman at left is due to the ambient light cast on her. (AP Photo/Fernando Antonio)
