Doctors and teachers returned to the streets of the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa for a third consecutive week on Tuesday to protest planned reforms of the health and education system.

The group marched on the motorway into the city in their thousands carrying banners and chanting slogans critical of the government.

The protests began when the Honduran Congress passed two bills seeking reform to the ministries of health and education. Doctors and teachers immediately went on strike, claiming that restructuring was the first step towards privatisation.
