Honduran Regime Reneges on Political Deal
Stephen J. Lawrence in Counterpunch
Despite a political agreement anounced two weeks ago to restore ousted Honduran president Manual Zelaya to power, the military-backed regime of Roberto Micheletti apparently has no intention of letting the deposed leader return to office, informed sources say.
