Opposition parties in Honduras have formally demanded the annulment of last month's presidential election.

The main opposition contender, Salvador Nasralla, accused the electoral authorities of tampering with the results in favour of the incumbent, Juan Orlando Hernández.

Official results show that Mr Hernández won the vote by a narrow margin, but a partial recount is under way.
