Hondurans went to the polls yesterday to pick a new president in one of the most bitterly- fought political campaigns since the country ended military rule just over a decade ago, AFP reports from Tegucigalpa.

The race to replace President Rafael Callejas, who ends his four-year term in January, has Oswaldo Ramos Soto of the ruling National Party running neck-and-neck against Roberto Reina of the Liberal Party.

Mutual mud-slinging by Mr Reina and Mr Ramos Soto has drawn protests from the Catholic church and the media.
