Ousted Leader Returns to Honduras

Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya is holed up in the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa after he slipped across the border and back into his home country to the surprise of supporters and opponents alike. Hundreds of supporters waited outside the embassy, and authorities have imposed a 15-hour curfew to prevent violence from breaking out. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged Zelaya and the de facto government to "dialogue." "[We traveled] for more than 15 hours... through rivers and mountains until we reached the capital of Honduras," Zelaya said of his surprise return. Brazil's foreign minister said his country had no part in the leader's return.
