Honduran policemen seize equipment from Radio Globo in Tegucigalpa on Monday. The interim government announced a media clampdown and a ban on unauthorized gatherings Sunday, following increased tensions after the return of ousted President Manuel Zelaya. Zelaya was removed from power June 28. He returned to Tegucigalpa on Sept. 21 and took refuge with a group of some 60 supporters in the Brazilian Embassy.
Zelaya and his supporters remain at the embassy. On Saturday, acting President Roberto Micheletti gave Brazil a 10-day deadline to define Zelaya's status. "If that's not done, we'll be forced to take supplementary measures under international law," Micheletti said in a statement.
Deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya speaks on the telephone inside the Brazilian Embassy in Tegucigalpa on Tuesday. The Honduran military forced Zelaya to flee to Costa Rica on June 28. On Sept. 21, he returned to Honduras and took refuge in the Brazilian Embassy.
