Pro-Zelaya supporters clash with Honduran police

Text size Aa Aa

Violence broke out in the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula on Sunday as some supporters of ousted leader Manuel Zelaya heeded his call not to take part in the country’s presidential election. They called for freedom but were met with armed police.

Many accuse the government of trying to stifle their democratic rights by jailing activists and shutting down anti-government radio and television stations. Honduras remains bitterly divided by the June coup – analysts say the first job of the new president will be to defend his legitimacy to many of his own people.
