Zelaya Fails to Return to Honduras

Former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya failed in his bid to return to Honduras today.

Instead of arresting Zelaya, Honduran authorities simply blocked the runway and prevented him from landing in a plane supplied to him by Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez.

There were also clashes between the Honduran authorities and pro-Zelaya supporters resulting in one fatality.

Meanwhile, Honduras' Interim President Roberto Micheletti has accused Nicaragua of moving its troops towards Honduras.

As for Zelaya, he intends to go to Washington for help.

Translation: Look for more meddling from President Obama.
