Honduran President not allowed in Honduras!
As Manuel Zelaya jetted back toward his country, the Honduran government warned him not to attempt to land in the capital, but now say they are ready to negotiate. The runways were blocked by helicopters and military vehicles. Karin Antunez, 27, was in tears. "We're scared. We feel sad because these coup soldiers won't let Mel return, but we're not going to back down," she said. "We're the people and we're going to keep marching so that our president comes home." Honduras' new government has vowed to arrest Zelaya for 18 alleged criminal acts including treason and failing to implement more than 80 laws approved by Congress since taking office in 2006. Zelaya also refused to comply with a Supreme Court ruling against his planned referendum on whether to hold an assembly to consider changing the constitution. Click here for more!
