POST-COUP

Honduras Reaches Deal With Ousted President

The Honduran military shocked the world when it expelled President Manuel Zelaya in June in a military coup. Now, after months of pressure from other countries, the interim government has reached an agreement with representatives of the ex-president that could allow Zelaya to return. The deal would create a power-sharing arrangement with a mutually recognized November 29 election. Zelaya is currently hiding in the Brazillian Embassy in Honduras' capital after a failed attempt to return to the country in September. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters the deal was "an historic agreement," and said "this is a big step forward for the inter-American system."
