Juan Orlando Hernandez was inaugurated Monday as president of Honduras, succeeding his National Party colleague Porfirio Lobo in a heavily attended ceremony in the National Stadium.

The presidential sash was bestowed on Hernandez by congress speaker Mauricio Oliva, also a member of the right-wing ruling party, as six heads of state and Spain's crown prince looked on.
